About Our Campus

Things for Parents to Know

Head Start, and grades Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth are served on our campus.

It is very important that your child arrive at school on time each day.  School begins promptly at 8:00 a.m.  Any student not in the classroom by 8:05 is considered tardy.  
Any student arriving after 8:05 must be signed-in by an adult in the office.  When your child arrives late, he or she begins the day “behind,” which can lead to frustration for him or her.  Students are able to receive rewards for perfect attendance, earn points for the Exemplary in All Endeavors program, and most importantly, our school funding depends on high student attendance.

Head Start and Pre-Kindergarten are dismissed at 2:45 p.m.  Town students are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. and bus students at 3:40 p.m. 

If your child is out of school, please contact the office by 8:30 a.m., so assignments can be arranged by the teacher.  Please send a doctor’s excuse or other note explaining the absence.  Any absence without written documentation will be considered unexcused.  If your child is sent home sick from school, please send a note to the school the following day to excuse the absence.  If you know that your child will need to miss school for some reason, please notify your child’s teacher and/or the office so a pre-arranged absence form can be completed.

Three or more tardies and/or absences in a 4-week period will be reviewed by the attendance committee.  

If you need to pick your child up before regular dismissal please report to the office to sign him/her out. The office staff will call for your child from the office.

We have one main entrance. In order to gain access to the school, visitors must enter through the main entrance and sign-in at the office to receive a visitor’s badge.  Once visitors have been signed in, they will be given access through our security door. All other exterior doors will remain locked throughout the day. We are happy to have this security measure in place to protect our students.

All school personnel will be wearing badges to identify themselves. If you do not have a visitor’s badge on, you will be asked to go back to the office to receive one. Knowing who is on campus at all times helps us protect your child’s safety.  To minimize disruptions of instructional time, only prearranged classroom visits are allowed during the school day.

Student lunches cost $2.75; adult lunches are $3.25.  Lunch money can be sent any day of the week. Each student is allowed to charge his/her lunch up to 5 times before being served an alternative meal.  Breakfasts are free and are served in the classroom each morning.

We encourage all parents to meet with their child's homeroom teacher throughout the school year.
