Virtual Instruction Policy
The 2016-2017 School Financial Report for Tomoka Elementary is available to be viewed or obtained. Section 1010.215, Florida Statutes, requires school districts to report certain financial information in the form of a school financial report as part of the annual school public accountability report. You can view or obtain this report at the following locations:
Late Arrivals: Students arriving at 8:00 a.m. or after will need to be walked to the office by his/her parent/guardian. Please bring your ID into the office to obtain your visitor's badge to walk your child to his/her class, as tardiness also disrupts the functionality of the school's office. Teachers will not be available to conference as instruction will have already begun by this time.
Early Dismissals: Students are not called out of class after 1:45p.m. (12:45p.m. on Wednesdays) for early dismissal These procedures are in place to protect the instructional time for all students.
Excused/Unexcused Checkouts: Every minute, every day of instruction is important to your child's learning, and we feel it is very important to educate our stakeholders about its necessity. Early checkouts will be recorded following the school district's definition for excused/unexcused checkouts. Excused checkouts include sick students leaving campus from the clinic, documented doctor's appointments and approved school activities. Unexcused checkouts include, but are not limited to checking your students out for lunch, leaving from field trips early and family trips. Additionally,
5 unexcused checkouts equates to 1 unexcused day of absence. It is our hope that with this knowledge, every effort will be made to ensure your child is at school from bell to bell for instruction. Attendance Matters.
Remember to keep your vehicles locked at all times when you are on campus. Stow electronics and chargers out of sight in your parked vehicle.
