3 Attendance If your child arrives: 8:06 – 9:00 they will be marked as tardy After 9:01 they will be marked as absent If your child arrives to school after a doctor’s visit, a parent needs to bring the child in with a doctor’s note and ask for an HCP (Health Care Provider) form to complete.

4 Changes in Transportation Transportation Tags We must have a written letter for any change in transportation. It must be hand delivered or faxed to the front office. No phone calls or emails will be accepted. If a student is riding a different bus, parent needs to notify the bus barn. Bus barn- 832.592.8800 Deretchin- 832.592.8700 Deretchin Fax- 832.592.8780

5 Birthdays Treats can no longer be passed out at school during lunch. You may drop off birthday treats at the front office and they will be delivered to the classrooms, or your child may bring the treats with them to school. Please ensure that all treats are either precut or ready for individual distribution such as cupcakes or cookies, etc. Invitations given out at school must be given out to the whole class, or all boys or girls. We cannot give out class lists, but we can provide you with an updated count of students in the class.

6 Healthy Snack Students may bring a healthy snack such as fruit, cheese sticks, pretzel, carrots, etc. Please do not send any chips, cookies, fruit roll ups, candy. Students are also encouraged to bring a water bottle with their name labeled clearly. Water bottles must have a secure lid.

7 Lunch Students have a lunch card. Drop off table for forgotten lunches is by the front entrance. Your child will be provided an alternative lunch, if no lunch or lunch money is in their account. Due to school policy, parents are asked to not take pictures at lunch.

13 Grades All work given in class is designed to assess the students’ knowledge of skills. Students are expected to complete work independently in order to provide us with the best feedback possible of their understanding. No make-up work will be given in advance. The number of days missed is the number of days allowed to complete the make-up work. Five points will be deducted for missing names on all work. If a child receives below a 70, they will be expected to correct the work, get it signed by a parent, and return it to school. Progress reports will go home with every child at the halfway point of each nine weeks. Our philosophy is that every child can be a successful learner in our room. The best learning environment is one where mistakes can be made, then discussed, and logic is drawn from that experience.
