ENTERING THE BUILDING
All visitors must enter the building through the main front doors, and must check in at the office. For the safety of our students, no one is to go directly to a classroom. Children will be called to the office if you are taking them out of school.
LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY
If appointments are unavoidable during school hours, please send a note to your child's teacher (which will then be sent to the office) stating when your child will be leaving and who will be picking him/her up. Just a thought - late start Wednesdays are perfect for appointments! When you come in to pick up your child, he/she will be called to the office by the secretary, and you must sign your child out. Please do not go directly to the classroom - yes, even if we know you! Thank you for your understanding on this important issue.
Please call the school office, 755-1480, if your child is going to be absent.
Also, call the office (755-1480) BEFORE 9:00 am if your child will be late and needs a hot lunch.
Parents will be called immediately after attendance is taken if a child is listed as absent and no call has been received.
Please make sure your child knows in the morning whether they will be picked up, are to ride the bus, or are to walk home. When classes are being dismissed and walking out of the building, it is not always possible to get a message to your child at the end of the day. Any after school schedule or transportation change must be called in prior to 3:00 pm.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
If you sign your child up for choir or drama, please remind him/her to stay for practice. A simple note to the teacher saying you do not want your child to stay for whatever reason on a given day will avoid having a child go home when you are not there. In other words, children who sign up for choir or drama will not be allowed to get on the bus without a note to the classroom teacher stating that your child is to ride home and miss practice for that day.
Free Breakfast is served in the classroom to any child who wishes to eat.
There is no cost for school lunches.
Milk $ .40 (for those who bring a cold lunch)
If you would like to eat at school with your child, adult lunch price is $2.90
School employees cannot dispense medication unless a written consent form, signed by both parents and the doctor, is on file in the school office. New medication forms are required yearly. You may pick up the form in the office before taking your child to the doctor.
All medicine must be taken to the school office along with the signed consent form. The container must be clearly labeled with the child's name, type of medication, and dosage requirements. Children are not allowed to keep any medications with them. Parents are welcome to come to school to give medication. This includes cough drops, Tylenol, aspirin, cough medicine, etc.
LOST AND FOUND
Lost and found items are placed in the hall by the office. Please put your child's name in clothing (jackets, sweatshirts, sweaters, shoes, etc.) and also in lunch boxes and bags. MANY items are left each year and are donated at the end of the school year.
