Handbook Essentials

Attendance Policy

Prompt and regular attendance is necessary for all students to attain academic success. Missed days, tardiness, and leaving school early create gaps in instruction and student learning.

If an absence is unavoidable, parents or legal guardians must call the school each day that their child will be absent, and state 4 the reason for the absence. Please call 831-3301, ext. 2 for the attendance line. This call must be made before 9:30 a.m.

Excessive absences will be documented and may be addressed through a truancy letter and/or by our administrative team, and an attendance contract will be developed with administration.

Students are NOT allowed to leave the school grounds unless a parent or guardian signs them out through the office. Parents must come directly to the office and state the reason needed for an early release and show a state issued picture ID. Only those persons listed on the child’s registration information will be allowed to sign out a student. 

Classroom instruction continues until the dismissal bell, so early pickups are discouraged and will be addressed by administrators. Students will not be released within 30 minutes of the dismissal bell, so please plan accordingly.

Drop Off/Pick Up Zones

If your child does not ride the provided bus, we ask that you access the parent pick-up zones at dismissal time. Our staff will be monitoring the areas and loading children safely in their cars. Please do not wait for your students in the halls. This is a safety hazard, unless you have checked in the front office and received a visitor’s badge (which must be worn and visible at all times).

The parking lot is NOT to be utilized for drop-offs and pick-ups at any time. For the safety of all, drop-offs and pick-ups are to be only in designated areas. If you must park for any reason, you must wait OUTSIDE the building for your child.

  • Kinder parents must pick up their students on the east side of campus.
  • 1st through 5th grade parents must pick up their students on the west side of campus.
