Important Safety Issue:

EVERYONE must report to office for a visitor's pass when visiting our campus


*Please remember that all changes to transportation must be made by 12:00 noon each day. You may send a note with your child or make a note in the planner and I will send it to the office to make the change.



   Students MUST bring a written excuse to explain their absence. A parent note will be accepted for any FOUR (4) absences during a nine (9) week period.  Any other absences, after the fourth absence, will only be excused with a note from a doctor, dentist, funeral program of an immediate family member, religious holiday or documentation for a legal reason. Students MUST turn in excuse notes to the teacher within three (3) days after an absence.  Excuse notes brought in after three (3) days will not be accepted.  After the fourth (4) unexcused absences in a nine-week period a mandatory child study team meeting will be held.

Please try to schedule all appointments for after school. When students check out, they are loosing instruction time that often cannot be recaptured.
