    Attendance matters


    Morning Drop-off Procedures & Tardies: Students may access the building at 7:15. All students will report to the cafeteria. School begins at 7:40 when students are released from the cafeteria to go to their classes. The tardy bell rings at 7:55. Any student not inside their classroom at 7:55 will need to sign in at the office and receive a tardy slip. Please allow sufficient time for a student to make it all the way to their classroom. If a student is tardy to class in the morning, a parent will be called to come to the office to check the student in late. If you drop off your student at or after 7:55, please come into the front office to check your student into the school. This procedure ensures the safety of the child and that the parent is informed and consents to their child arriving late to school.
