IMPORTANT GENERAL INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS
What If. . .
…you are late for school?
If you are late to school you should have a signed note from a parent or guardian explaining the reason for being late. You will sign in using the QR Code found in the main office corridor upon enterng the building. If you fail to sign in, a telephone call will go home to parents. Excessive tardiness is not acceptable. Please refer to the attendance policy.
…you have to get dismissed early from school?
You must bring in a signed note to the Main Office in the morning and you will receive a dismissal slip. When it is time to be dismissed, you will show this slip to the teacher, and then bring the slip to the main office. A parent or guardian must come to the main office door and ring the bell. At that time you will be sent out. No dismissals will be allowed after 2:00p.m.
…you get sick or injured during school time?
The school nurse will decide if there is a need to leave school or seek further medical attention. In such cases, parents or guardians will be notified. This is one reason accurate and up to date emergency information is needed. You are not to call home to ask a parent to come to pick you up. The nurse will handle this.
…you must contact your parents?
A telephone in the main office is available to students. The best time to make calls is at lunchtime. Calls at the end of the day are discouraged in order to avoid missing assigned buses. Students are not allowed to use cell phones at school; parents are not allowed to “text” or call students directly during the school day. Please call 841-1200 to have a message relayed to your child.
…you forget something at home?
Parents may only drop off essential items (such as medications or eye glasses) to the school nurse. If a nonessential item is dropped off for you, it will be placed in the bin by the main office; it is your responsibility to pick the item up in between classes or with teacher permission.
…you forget your lunch?
The school does not want any student to go without eating lunch. All lunches are free to all students for the 2022-23 school year There is no need to contact home for a lunch to be brought to school.
…you lose money or personal items?
If you lose money or personal items, your teachers and/or someone in the main office should be notified as soon as possible. You should also check the lost and found box in the main office and the cafeteria. You should not bring large sums of money or any valuable item to school.
…you lose or damage an iPad, library book, or other borrowed materials?
You are responsible for all books / materials given to you during the year. You must pay for any item that is lost or damaged during the time that you have it signed out to you. A new text, trade book, or other media device may not be issued until a student provides a replacement or payment. Please refer to Information Technology website for complete information regarding lost or damaged iPads.
…you are not sure whether or not there is school because of a bad storm?
When it becomes necessary to cancel school or delay the opening of school because of poor weather there will be announcements on several radio and TV stations; additional information may be found on the school department website. The school system will communicate via our Connect Ed Phone Notification System as well. Please listen for these announcements and do not call the school.
