Attendance and Punctuality is a major point of emphasis this year. Students must be in the building by 8:04. We encourage our students to ride the bus, but if you must drop off, please make sure students are IN THE BUILDING by 8:04. Students who are habitually late are subject to school discipline. In addition, study after study shows the correlation between school attendance and punctuality are major points of emphasis, so please do your best to limit absences.
A reminder to pick up your children in the rear of the building (small cafeteria) if you arrive after 2:15 PM. From 2:20 to 2:30 we cannot do pick-ups unless there is a family emergency. In this case, please call the main office in advance so we can have your child ready.
I know that many questions will arise as the year unfolds and our office staff and teachers are happy to assist. Please do your best to contact the appropriate office for questions regarding your children (845-228-2300).
