Please help us to keep your children safe by having them come to school at their designated time.
Attendance is taken after opening exercises. Your child will be marked late after this time.
Call Back Program
To ensure the safety of our elementary students we have an automated call back system in place for our students called SAFE ARRIVAL. When your child is away from school we ask that you phone the following number 1-855-278-4513 BEFORE 9:00 AM. to let us know. It is very important to call this number prior to school start. Otherwise you will receive a phone call from the system. You can also download the SAFE ARRIVAL app for your phone or for your computer. Please make sure the school has your current phone number that you can be reached at.
Permission to Leave School Grounds
Children are not permitted to leave the school grounds during school hours unless there is a written request or phone call from parents. This includes the noon hour for those who are in the lunch program.
When children are dismissed at the end of the day we remind them that they must go straight home first.
Note: Parents picking up children early ( i.e. for appointments or other reasons, please report to the office. Your child will be called to meet you)
