Helpful Tips for Safe Drop Off and Pick Up

  • If your child has an appointment, please be here by 2:10pm to pick them up.
  • Early Release Day pick up is at 11:30AM (in order to sign out for appointments, be here by 11:10pm)
  • When signing children out early, pull into the staff/visitor parking and walk in with your ID. Please do not block the driveway.
  • Do not forget to pull all the way down to the last cone during arrival and dismissal. This helps unload and load students in the most efficient method.

School Debt

Do you owe money for library books? Cafeteria debt? Field Trips?

We are happy to help you pay this! Please contact the office and we can help you set up a plan!

Attendance, Tardies, Early Checkouts

All absences should have a note. If you have a doctor's note, please make sure to turn it in to the school office. Parent notes will be accepted for up to 10%, unless you have been notified that only doctor's notes will be accepted due to historical attendance records. (10% - for example, if we are on day 30, you should not have more than 3 total)

All tardies/early checkouts will be recorded daily as excused/unexcused. If you have a doctor's note, please make sure to bring it with you!

Parent contact will be made after an excessive amount of tardies/early checkouts as this is instructional time missed. (10% - for example, if we are on day 30, you should not have more than 3 total)

No student dismissal after 2:10pm.

Tardies and Early Checkouts can prevent your child from earning Perfect Attendance.
