What should I do if my child is late to class?

Tardies affect the entire class, so we appreciate it when all students get to school on time. If your student must be late, a parent or guardian must sign in the student at the front office.

What should I do if my child is sick?

In order to help keep all of our students and staff healthy, if your child is sick, please do not send him/her to school. Please call the office the morning of the absence, and let us know that your child is sick. 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.”
