Adult supervision is not provided until 8:00 a.m. Therefore, in order to ensure your child’s safety, students should not arrive to school prior to 8:00 a.m. each day. Students who arrive before the specified time will:

    (1)    Receive a verbal warning by the principal

    (2)    Receive a written warning followed by a phone call to the parent

    (3)    Principal will notify the Department of Children and Families for parental negligence


    *All students, with the exception of bus students, should report to the northern side of the school (Butler Street) each morning at the cafeteria doors.



    The cafeteria doors located on the northern side of the school (Butler Street) will be opened at 8:00 a.m. each morning. Breakfast will be served in your child’s classroom each morning from 8:30 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. If your child arrives after the specified time, then he/she will not be able to eat breakfast that day.



    Research states, student achievement is greatest when children are actively engaged in a structured and organized learning environment. Therefore, all students should be present and on time each day! School begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. each day. Students arriving to school or class at 8:30 a.m. will be marked TARDY! Tardiness is a Class 1 offense (1.05 Code of Student Conduct). After 3 Tardies within a Nine Week period, students who arrive tardy will:

    (1)    School staff will send home a certified letter about the problem to the parent via US mail

    (2)    School staff may ask parents/guardians to come to school to discuss the problem and district procedures for Saturday School

    (3)    Non-compliancy will result in both the parent and student being referred to the State Attorney’s Office

    * If your child is late to school you must walk them inside and sign them in so that they can receive a late slip. This is for safety purposes and also accountability on the parent’s part. If not, they will be reported to the Truant Office.



    Please go directly to the main office to check your child in or out of school. Teachers will not allow students to enter or exit their rooms until informed by the main office. (No Student Check-out between 2:15-3:00 p.m. daily). You may not walk down to the classrooms to meet your child. Please wait in the car riding zone or walker area until your child is dismissed.
