Attendance: 

  • Please ensure that your child attends school daily and arrives no later than 8:30 a.m.- There will be a random drawing each day for students who come on time.

  

Attendance- Our goal is 95%!!-Please join me in working to improve out attendance. Students must be present in order to learn. If they must be out due to illness, please write a note and send it to your child’s teacher.

 

Arrival and Dismissal Reminders- As long as the weather permits, will line up in the schoolyard starting no earlier than 8:20 a.m., as there is no staff available to supervise children before this time.  Students are to be picked up by 3:09. The school does not provide childcare beyond this time.  Please ensure that you make appropriate arrangements for pick-up and aftercare through a day care or out of school time provider.
