School Hours To ensure adequate supervision, students may enter the campus playground no earlier than 7:35 am each day throughout the entire school year. The line-up bell will ring at 7:50 am. All gates are locked following the line-up bell. Students must line up on their designated classroom dots at this time. The tardy bell rings at 8:00 a.m. Students arriving after 8:00 am are late and must report to the office for a late pass. Teachers are not permitted to admit late students into class without a tardy slip. A required parent conference will be scheduled if a student demonstrates a pattern of tardiness. Dismissal is at 2:11 pm Students are encouraged to go straight home after school for safety purposes. All plans for after school must be made before the school day and communicated with the student. Any changes to the normal routine should be communicated to the teacher via written note (not email). Teachers may not have access to email during the day due to instruction. The office will not deliver phone messages to students for security reasons. Parents are ONLY permitted on the playground at arrival or dismissal the first day of school.
Standard Student Attire (SSA) In the Spring of 2022, Twitchell families voted to continue our mandatory uniform program or Standard Student Attire. SSA Guidelines have been provided and have also been posted on our school website. Students out of SSA will be sent to the Health Office to borrow a clean uniform. This uniform should be returned once it has been laundered. If we are unable to provide the student with SSA, we will call home for a change of clothing to ensure students are in compliance with SSA. Multiple SSA violations may result in a required parent conference with administration. Uniforms can be purchased at any retail store such as Old Navy, Kohls, Sears, Target, etc. We also sell shirts in our front office.
Messages to Students We cannot deliver phone messages to students or their teachers involving changes to after school plans. We have no way of positively identifying who is on the other end of the phone thus creating a potential safety issue. All changes to after school plans must be communicated to your child’s teacher IN WRITING (not email). This includes students who ride the bus or attend Safekey. Parents can meet them at their bus stop. We encourage families to maintain consistent after school pick-up plans and to communicate them to your child each morning.
