Close-toe footwear is required. No open sandals or heels (basically, we can’t see your toes).
No wheels on shoes.
No backpacks that have wheels.
No electronic devices are allowed at school. Parents may allow their children to have a cell phone (at their own risk – we are not responsible for lost or stolen cell phones) for safety reasons. However, if a staff member sees or hearts it, it will be confiscated and turned into the office. A parent must come get it – we will not send it home with the child.
No educational opportunities this year – these will be counted as unexcused absences.
Military leave is restricted to five days AFTER a parent returns from deployment.
A written excuse, stating the reason for the absence, must be sent to the classroom on the day the student returns with a parent signature.
Chronic tardiness, absences, and checking students out of school prior to dismissal have enormously negative effects on student progress. Research shows that students with 10 or more absences have lower reading levels, enjoy school less, and have lower report card grades. Most important, the largest predictor of a student dropping out of high school is how often they are absent in elementary school.
