I appreciate your support and understanding. Visitors are welcome, but please contact me in advance to let me know you are coming. Scheduled visitors must sign in at the front office before coming to the classroom. Visitors to the Classroom

7 If you must pick your child up early from school, please send a note in advance so I can have them ready to leave at the appropriate time. Pick-Ups after 11am count as a full day of school. Parents must sign students out in the front office and bring the release slip to the teacher. I cannot release your child to you without the release slip from the office. Please understand that core academic subjects are taught all day long, so students will miss academic time if they arrive to school late or are picked up early. If a child stays home sick, please write a note that states this. If a child is taken to the doctor, please send in an excuse from the doctor’s office. Early Pick-Ups and Dismissal Notes
