    • Please call the office if your child will be late or absent.  The office makes safety calls each morning by 9:30 when students are marked absent without prior notice.  This is a safety issue.
    • When providing your own transportation, please drop off your child/children off no earlier than 5 minutes before the start time, (8:55 am – 8:50 if they are eating breakfast) and please pick them up promptly after school.  Also if you are picking your children up after school, please send a note with

    them or give the office a call before 2 pm.  For safety reasons we need to know if students are not riding the bus.  Any and all information regarding a student being picked up or a change of destination must be relayed directly to the office since we are responsible for students.  If we have not received a note to hold your child, he/she will be sent on the bus to their regular destination.  

    • When a student arrives late, parents please have him/her check into the office before going to class.  Students arriving more than 5 minutes after start time are Tardy.  Students leaving more than 5 minutes before release time are Tardy.
