Please do not drop students off in the faculty parking area-Our teachers need to park and safely get to class to support students.
There is free breakfast for every student, even if they are not on free and reduced lunch/breakfast. Hot breakfast stops at 8:10 a.m. “Quick” breakfast consisting of cereal, milk, and juice will be provided after 8:10 a.m. to any student.
Teacher/Parent meetings are to be held during teacher conference times (unless previously arranged). Please respect the teachers’ time in the morning since their focus should be on receiving all students and preparing for the day.
Only parents with scheduled conferences and office passes may pass through the double doors or accompany students into the Courtyard.
Students will not be released for early pick-up after 3 p.m. unless previously arranged. Please understand that this can be a very hectic time of the day, and for the safety of all, they will remain in class until the bell rings.
The Faculty parking lot will also be closed to pick up students after school until the after the yellow bus has picked up the students.
All absences should be called into the school office by 10:15 AM EACH day a student is absent to be considered for an "excused absence." School phone number is 682-867-3800.
If a student leaves early or comes in late to school due to a doctor/dentist appointment, they are required to bring a doctor's note to be considered excused.
No makeup work can be accepted for unexcused tardies or absences.
Students are considered tardy if they are not in their classrooms by 8:20 each morning. Three tardies are equal to one unexcused absence on the student's absentee record. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOUR CHILD IS AT SCHOOL ON TIME!
School is dismissed at 3:35, and parents are expected to pick up their children on time or make other arrangements for pick up.
It is imperative that the school office has current home and work numbers for all students. If your home number or work place changes, please notify the school office immediately so the information can be changed on the student's enrollment card. Your child will only be released to persons listed on the back of the white enrollment card in the case of illness or early pickup. It is very unfortunate to have incorrect phone numbers or emergency contact numbers when a child has become ill or injured at school.
All visitors must sign in with the office staff and wear a VISITOR badge while they are in the building for any reason.
Lunch (Lunch is closed to all visitors at this time)
All parents/grandparents are welcomed to have lunch with their student. (Please sign in with office before going to the cafeteria)
