Reminders

  • If your student needs to be dismissed early from class for any reason, please send a written note to the attendance secretary on the morning of the appointment. Please include date, time and reason for the dismissal so that your child will have a pass to be excused from class. Texting your child does not count as a note for the office. This is designed to limit the number of phone calls to classrooms, as well as for the accountability of your student. Thank you for your cooperation.
  • When dropping students off in the morning, please pull to the end of the drop off area so the line does not get backed up.  Class starts at 7:34 a.m., so if the student is not in the classroom they are counted tardy.
  • As the weather begins to get colder, keep in mind that the building does not open until 7:00 a.m. Please make sure your students are dressed for the cold if they will be waiting outside in the mornings.
