Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders
Remember that, as adults, we should always be modeling proper behavior for our children. Please be courteous and respectful. Also, please make sure that you are using crosswalks to cross streets and in our parking lot. Do not let your children walk between parked busses - this is very dangerous since bus drivers can't always see small children.
Absences and Tardies
- The academic impact of missing school is the same whether absences are excused or unexcused.
- Students may be able to make up missing assignments, but they will be missing direct instruction, which cannot be made up.
- Instruction begins when the first bell rings and does not end until the last bell at the end of the day. Students who come to school late or leave early will miss valuable instruction and learning opportunities.
- If a student is 10 minutes late to school each day, this adds up to missing more than 33 hours (6 school days!) of class time.
- A student with a 90 percent attendance average for Kindergarten through 12th grade will miss over a year of accumulated time in the classroom.
- Remember, 5 star schools have 5 star students, which requires 5 star attendance.
- Make sure your child comes to school on time every day, and stays for the entire day.
- Make medical and dental appointments outside of the school day whenever possible.
- Plan family vacations during school breaks.
