The First Week Was A Success!

We are ecstatic to have our returning families back, and even more exciting to welcome our new families! This week has been a phenomenal start to the 2016-2017 school year. Our students have hit the ground running, eager to learn!  We have just a few reminders for our parents and guardians regarding uniform policies, attendance, and dismissal procedures.

Policy and Procedure Reminders

  • Attendance and Tardies
    • Please be reminded that school begins promptly at 8:00am daily. Students should be in their classrooms at this time. 
    • Students are marked tardy at 8:15am. 
    • Parents will be notified when absences and tardies begin to accumulate. 
  • Dismissal Procedures
    • Please ensure your child(ren)'s teacher(s) are aware of your most updated dismissal plan. With bus routes and YMCA rosters finalized, changes may have occurred to your child's daily dismissal plans and teachers should be notified of any changes as soon as possible. 
    • If a change is made to your dismissal plans, (i.e.: Your child is normally a Y student, but will ride the bus home for a day) please send a written/signed note or call the school. For safety and security purposes, teacher's are not permitted to make changes to dismissal arrangements solely based on a message verbally relayed by a student.
    • Carpool is held in the back parking lot in the morning as well as the afternoon. For safety and traffic concerns. students should not be dropped off or picked up in the front of the school from 7:00am-8:00am, or 2:45pm- 3:30pm. 
  • Uniform Policies
    • Please help us to maintain the expectations regarding uniform policies. 
    • Students should wear Navy blue, White, Royal Blue or Orange collared shirts. 
      • Please note that Light Blue shirts will begin to be phased out beginning next school year. 
    • Students should wear Navy or Khaki colored, Khaki bottoms.
    • Skirts, shorts, and dresses should follow the finger-tip rule. 
    • Students should wear neutral colored shoes, no light-flashing shoes. 
    • Students should not wear open-toed shoes for safety reasons. 
    • If students are out of uniform, administration will contact parents for a change of clothing.
