The Cambridge Mission

The mission of Cambridge Elementary, the heart of our school family, is to ensure all students

become respectful, independent, critical thinkers through engaging experiences distinguished by supportive relationships, positive, safe environments, and individual accountability.

SCHOOL HOURS

*Doors open at 8:15 am*

Please do not send your kids to school early as there is no supervision in the parking lots before 8:15am!

ABSENT - LATE - LEAVING EARLY

ABSENT or LATE - If your child will be absent from school, please email cambridge@bsd124.org or call (816 -348-1008) by 9:00 am. (This is a security measure to ensure parents/guardians or school staff know the whereabouts of each student.) Please send all doctor/dentist/other professional notes to the office upon student's returning to school.


LEAVING EARLY - If you need to pick up your student(s) early, please arrive before 3:05 pm. Students will not be called out of class after 3:15 pm. A valid photo id and note on student record of person picking up will be required in order to release your student.

TRANSPORTATION CHANGES

If you would like your student(s) to go home in a different manor then usual you must email the the office at cambridge@bsd124.org before 3:00pm. We cannot guarantee a change request will be delivered after 3pm. Changes CANNOT be accommodated without an email. Phone calls will not be accepted, since this not a safe procedure as we cannot verify the person calling.

BackSnacks and Giving the Basics

The Belton School District and Cambridge are partnering with Harvester’s again to supply BackSnacks to families in need. BackSnacks are bags of extra food items that go home once a week to help supplement weekend meals for students and families.


Cambridge also partners with Giving the Basics to help supply families in need by providing basic personal hygiene items. These items are shipped to the school and distributed from the Counselor’s office.


If you family has a need for these resources, please reach out to Mrs. Keri Wardlow whose number is (816) 348-1008.

Health and Wellness


The Belton School District Board of Education adopted a district Wellness Program to promote student health, facilitate student learning of lifelong healthy habits, and increase student achievement (Board policy ADF). To check out more information in regards to this program, please see our district webpage linked here.
