Morning School Times
Buses begin unloading at 8:10 a.m. at the little building. For student drop off at the K-1 building the main door will be opened at 8:00 a.m. and students will be supervised in the lobby. At the 2nd -5th grade building the cafeteria door will be opened at 8:00 a.m. and students will be supervised in the cafeteria. Parents wishing to enter the building with their child will need to use the new front entrance. They may report to classrooms when the buses dismiss. Students are late for school at 8:30 a.m. and must report to the office.
There is a buzzer system in effect on the lakeside doors. The locks are turned on at 8:30am and turned off at 3:00pm. Visitors may press the red button to the right of the doors to request admission.
School bus regulations must be obeyed at all times. The bus driver is in charge of all students on his or her bus and should be shown proper respect and courtesy. Loud and boisterous behavior on the buses will not be tolerated. This is distracting to the driver and could result in a serious accident. Students who willfully disobey the directions of the driver will lose the privilege of bus transportation. The bus drivers have been instructed to refer unruly students to the principal. Bus drivers also have the authority to assign students to specific seats.
If you change your address, phone number or employment at any time throughout the year, please send written notification so your emergency information can be updated. It is imperative that we have the most up-to-date information in case of emergency so you can be contacted immediately.
If you need to phone a staff member, just call the school and leave a message. Our teachers, of course, are in the classroom teaching your children and will not be able to come to the phone. All teachers can also be reached via their email. We cannot deliver personal messages to students, nor can we call students to the telephone. Please make personal and family arrangements at home.
If your child misses school, a dated and signed note containing your child's full name must be sent to school when he/she returns explaining the reason for the absence. Please refer to the district attendance policy for what is deemed an excused or unexcused reason for absence. Notes must be received within 3 days of the child's return or the absence will be recorded as unexcused.
Families may request up to ten (10) vacation days per year with prior written approval of the school at least five (5) days prior to the vacation. These request forms can be found in the calendar. Prior written approval must be obtained even if the request is for just one (1) day. Without prior written approval, the time off will be unexcused. Please consider the state testing schedule when planning a vacation.
Please make every effort to schedule appointments during after-school hours.
Children will NOT be released by a phone call and will only be released to someone whose name is on the Permission to Pickup list.
We welcome all visitors and volunteers!
