  • Attendance

    Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after winter break.  It’s time to break that cycle. This holiday season, the best gift you can give your child is a good education.  And the best place to get that education is in school. Every day. On time. Thank you!

  • Early Pick-Up Policy:

    If a student is picked up at any time before the end of the school day, he/she must be picked up by the parent/guardian listed in the office computer. The ONLY exception to this rule is that a parent/guardian can send in a note (with his/her signature) stating who will be picking up their child on that specific date.

    IMPORTANT: If you want to pick up your child before the end of the school day, it must be BEFORE 2:00pm (M,W,Th,F) or 12:45pm (Tuesdays). Anyone arriving after this time will need to wait until classes are dismissed to take your child. The end of the day is a very busy time in the classroom as students pack up to go home and some classes end their day in PE, which makes it difficult to get messages to them. Thank you for understanding.

    If you have any questions about this new policy, please feel free to call the office.
