Arrival Time

Students are expected to be on time to class every day. We recommend that they be here by 7:45 a.m. There is NO SUPERVISION for children before 7:40 a.m. At the 8:00 a.m. bell, all students, grades 1-5 line up on the playground with their class at the morning assembly area. This year we are focusing on improving attendance and reducing the number of students who are tardy to school. Your child will be marked TARDY if he/she enters class after 8:05 a.m. Students must report to the office before going to class if tardy. Please write a note stating the reason for lateness.



Students are expected to attend school every day, unless ill or they have a family emergency! Students are expected not to miss more than seven days in a school year. It is critical that following an absence; every child returns to school with a note of explanation. If medical appointments must be made during the school day, please schedule them around the instructional program or after school. Extended absences for family trips, we hope that school attendance is a very high priority and that your child will miss school only under extreme, exceptional circumstances.


Minimum And Shortened Days

On Minimum Days, the students in grades K-5 attend school from 8:00-12:45 p.m. Shortened Days the student’s attend school from 8:00-1:55 p.m. Minimum and Shortened Days allow the staff to meet for important meetings, conferences, visits to other school, staff collaboration together and other school issues. We are allowed ten minimum days or twenty shortened days (or a combination of both) per school year. Minimum and Shortened Days will be on the school calendar, and reminders will be sent home.
