Policy Reminders:
Does your child ever stay after school?
Students that are staying after school for any reason, make-up work, review session, club meeting or sports, are under the sponsoring teacher’s supervision until the parent arrives. Students are NOT allowed to sit outside or in the main office unsupervised waiting for their ride. Arrangements MUST to be made in advance if your child plans on staying after school or they should not stay. If a child is not picked up within 30 minutes of the designated pick-up time, the student will be sent to Beyond the Bell in the library. The parent will then be charged $1 a minute until the student is picked up. After 3pm, teachers are giving their personal time and it is frustrating when they have to sit with a student for 30 minutes, 60 minutes, or sometimes longer waiting on a student to be picked up. We have to make changes to our policy or teachers will stop offering after school activities and we do not want that to happen.

 News from the District – Access to the Building
ALL parents that plan on entering the building during the day before or after school, even if students are not in the building, need to be cleared. We are asking that EVERY parent or guardian that might be on campus for a conference, IEP meeting, 504 meeting or for anything else, PLEASE click on the link below to register for access.

Early Checkout Procedure
As indicated in the Student Handbook 2013-2014: As a safety precaution, students will only be released to the parent/guardian or the Emergency Contact listed on the Emergency Card. A current driver’s license or state issued ID must be presented in the front office to check a student out early. The following procedure will be strictly enforced: NO student may be signed out after 1:35 p.m. every day except Wednesday. The latest early checkout on Wednesday is 12:35 p.m. Parents must arrive in the front office no later than 1:30 p.m. (or 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday) in order to sign their child out early. Students who check out during the school day due to illness are not eligible to return to the school that same evening for any activities as a participant or a member of the audience.

Parent Drop-off & Pick-up
Students can be dropped off starting at 7:10 am. They will sit in the library until 7:30 am when students are released from the buses. The parent drop-off line is extremely busy in the morning, so we encourage your child to ride the bus if they are eligible for that service. If you drive your child to school, we ask that he/she be ready to exit the vehicle quickly when you stop in the loop. Please say your good-byes and give kisses while waiting to turn into the drop-off loop.
When dropping off or picking up, please do not block the entrance to the neighborhood, The Colony. Residents have been complaining that they cannot get in or out. Also, please do not pull in the grass at the entrance of The Preserve to avoid the line and drop-off your child. This is unsafe and destroying the entrance of this neighborhood.
