The school day begins at 8:35 and ends at 3:55.  

 

Late Arrival:

If your child comes to school after 8:35, please sign them in at the office.  

Attendance is taken at 9:30 every day.  If they arrive after 9:30 and there is no doctor’s note, they will be counted absent for the day.

 

Check Out Early: Please keep early check out to a minimum.  

If you check your child out early, you will need to sign them out in the office.

Every time your child checks out early, they miss important instructional time and the class is interrupted.

We will not check students out after 3:30 unless they have an appointment or prior approval.

 

End of the Day:

It is very important that teachers know how your child is getting home each day.  If your end of the day plan needs to change, please send a signed written note to the teacher or call the school office before 3:00.  

Note:  It is not sufficient for your child to relay the message to the school.
