Early Morning Care Do not drop your child off before 7:15. If for some reason they need to be dropped off early, they must bring $3 for early morning care (6:30 – 7:15). This includes if they miss the bus and you have to leave for work early.
Transportation and Absence Notes All transportation notes must be handwritten /typed and brought in the morning of the change. Note should include your childs first and last name and have your signature! Absence excuses need to be brought to school within 3 days after the absence. These must also include your childs first and last name. Please do not email transportation or absence excuses to me since the front office is in charge of these notes.

AGENDAS Each afternoon your child will fill out their assignments in class. All homework will be passed out and put in their binders at this time. I will come around and check their binder. If they did not pull a stick that day I will put a smiley face sticker on that day. If they did pull a stick I will just initial. Please check these nightly to see what kind of day your child had. Also any short notes for me can be written here since I see these daily. Please do not feel discouraged if I do not write back the same day. This just means we were too busy to stop and write a note! I will get to it as soon as possible!
