What do I do if my child is late to school?

Tardies affect the entire class, so we appreciate all students who get to school on time. If your child must be late, we ask him or her to stop by the office and get a pass before heading to class.

My child must miss a day of school. How do I proceed?

If you know your child must be absent, please send a note to your child’s teacher explaining the circumstances and date(s) of the absence. We will try our best to get any work together that your child might miss. If your child is sick, please call the office the morning of the absence, and let us know where your child is. Not only do we want to make sure your child is safe, we also want to mark your child as “excused.” If we do not receive a call or note explaining the absence, we will record it as “unexcused.”

What do I need to do in order to withdraw my child from school?

Please let us know if your family will be moving. Your child will need to turn in any textbooks or library books he or she may have at home. You’ll also need to clear any debt you may have with our school (such as outstanding lunch charges).

Does the school allow students to have a cell phone at school?

We know that many students have a cell phone. We ask that students keep their phone turned off and stored in their backpack or locker during the school day. If we see a student using a cell phone during the school day, we will confiscate the phone. We also do not allow other types of electronic devices at school, including hand-held game systems, mp3 devices, iPods, etc. Please note that we are not responsible for items students bring to school in the event they are lost or stolen.

We do not allow students to have any medications in their possession during school hours.

One of our main goals is to provide a safe learning environment for all students. We do not tolerate bullying in any form. Please let your child’s teacher know what is going on at school. Students who engage in bullying or harassment of other students will face serious consequences, including suspension.
