Absence/Late Arrival

If your child is going to be absent from school, please call our attendance line and leave a message as to why your child is absent. If your child arrives late to school, he/she needs to check in at the office before going to class to check-in and receive a tardy slip to give to their classroom teacher.

If your child needs to leave early from school, he/she will need to be checked-out through the office by the authorized adult taking the child from school.

Any planned absence lasting longer than two days, such as a family vacation, needs to be pre-approved with the Planned Absence form available through the office.

Drop-off & Pick-up After School Procedure

For the safety of your children, students that are being picked up by car or day care bus will be directed to wait for pick-up on “The Porch” under the covered area. Families parked in the pick-up lane are asked to remain in your vehicles. School staff will direct students to their appropriate vehicles as families pull forward in front of “The Porch”. In order to maintain social distancing, please do not park and walk up to the entrance. Handicap parking is available in the upper lot. If you have questions, please contact Mr. Brock. 


Lost and Found

We encourage families to label all clothing items and lunch boxes with the child's name so it can be returned, However, if your child has misplaced a coat, jacket, lunch box, or any number of other personal items, the Lost and Found cart is located outside the gym in the foyer leading outside to the playground. This is a good place for families to look for items as well. If the item that was lost is small (i.e. jewelry, eye glasses, rings, etc.), the item will be placed in the office for safe keeping. Lost and Found items are put on display during conference weeks for families to check as well. At the end of the school year all remaining items are sent to Goodwill.
