Tardiness and Early Leave

It is very important for your child to arrive on time each day.  Unnecessary tardiness and/or early leaves are disruptive to your child’s education, as well as to the rest of the class.  If a child arrives late, please sign them in at the office.  Students who are tardy for class receive consequences as designated by the teacher.


Picking up students before the end of the school day interrupts the instruction for the entire class.  Please avoid picking your child up between 3:00 and 3:38.  In order to avoid interruptions in the education program, we ask your cooperation in picking up your child during school hours.  Report to the office, present your ID and sign out your child.  We will contact your child’s teacher who will send your child to the office.  Please remember parents or guardians should be the ones picking up a child.  If you need someone else to pick up your child, that person must be over 18 and listed on your child’s pickup card.  We will not allow children to go home unattended during the day for any reason.


Please refer to the ATTENDANCE section for more detailed information.
