Elementary Practices and Procedures


❖ Contact the office if your student will be absent or late for any reason.  

Your child’s progress, both academic and social, is influenced to a great extent by participation. Regular attendance without tardiness is a key to promoting a positive learning experience and habits of lifelong learning. 

The learning environment is often interrupted by students who are tardy or checked out early. Please do everything possible to reduce these interruptions. Late students must check-in with the office.

In order to guarantee the safety of your child, students may only be checked-out through the following procedures: 

1. Students will only be released from class to office personnel. 

2. Students will only be released to those listed on the student’s emergency contacts.  

Bicycles, Skateboards, Rollerblades/Skate Shoes, etc.:

Students riding a bicycle to school are to walk their bikes while on school property to ensure the safety of all children. For safety reasons, skateboards, rollerblades/skate shoes, etc. must be carried while on school property. The school assumes no responsibility for bicycles, scooters, skateboards, or any other transportation device.
