Absences/Tardies Classes begin at 7:50. Your child is tardy after 8:01. Breakfast ends at 8:10. If your son or daughter is absent, please send a note explaining why or a doctor’s note.
Transportation We know from time to time it is necessary to make changes in your child’s transportation arrangements, but it is extremely important to send a note in the morning or call the office before 2 pm that day to make any changes. Please no voice mail!
Medications Please do not send ANY medicine to school with your child. If it is necessary for your child to take medication while at school, a parent must bring the medication directly to the school nurse and fill out an authorization form. This includes: cough drops, Tylenol, Advil, allergy medicines, etc.

Schedule A copy of your child’s daily schedule will be in their binder. Lunch: 10:45 – 11:15 Recess: 1:30-1:45
B.E.A.R (Be Excited About Reading!) Have your child read each night (Monday –Thursday) for at least 15 minutes, for a total of 60 minutes or more, and write their minutes on your child’s reading calendar. Keep the reading/behavior calendar in your child’s binder so that it is returned daily. So, READ, READ, READ!!!
Baggie Books It is necessary for your child to read every night! DRA Reading Levels (Beginning of Year-3, Middle of Year-10/12, End of Year-16/18) The books that your child will take home, in their Reading Bag, need to be read every night with an adult. By the end of the year, all first graders need to be reading at a fluency of 60+ words per minute. The best way to increase fluency is to read, re-read, re- read, and re-read again!
