General Reminders to Parents

  • Please make every effort to email, phone or use the agenda to communicate with your child’s teacher, rather than trying to speak with them before class or at dismissal.
  • Call the school before 8:40 to report your child’s absence
  • Call in before 2:30 for end of day changes and requests.
  • All bus changes must be made in writing, in order for the office to issue a bus pass. Also, we need notes from both sets of parents involved.
  • Parents/guardians must report to the office to sign-in or sign-out students.
  • Parents are asked to wait by the front entrance while a staff member gets their child for them, rather than going down the hall yourself.
  • No parking or stopping in the driveway when picking up or dropping off students. This is an emergency fire route and must be kept clear at all times.
