    Arrival:  We expect all students to arrive on time to school, but recognize that mornings don't always go as planned.  If your child is late to school, you must personally come to the front office to sign your child(ren) in with the office staff. 

     

    Early Dismissal:  Early dismissal needs to be kept to a minimum, since it deprives academic instructional time from your student.  Please refrain from early dismissal except in extreme emergency.  If an emergency arises, you may sign your child(ren) out in the front office by showing your driver's license or photo ID.  Early dismissals will be marked as an absence for part of the day on your child's attendance record.  If you know in advance that you will need to pick up your child early, please send a note to the teacher.
     
    Important:  We realize that emergencies arise during the day, but most dismissal changes can be arranged prior to the start of school and should be sent to us in writing.  Please do not request dismissal changes after 1:15 p.m. (or 12:15 p.m. on early release days), as we cannot assure that a message will be delivered after that time. 

    Attendance

    Anytime that your child is absent from school, you must call the school at (386) 575-4230 and select "attendance" from the automated answering system. You will be directed to leave your child's name, teacher's name, and a brief reason for being absent.  After 15 absences, a doctor's note is required.
