FAQ’s for Parents

How do I report an absence to school?

You may write a note, call the school at 774-0900, or leave a message on the clinic voice mail after hours @ 774-0905.

How do I pick my child up early from school?

Due to the activity at the end of the day, we ask that early pick up’s must be before 3:00 pm. Go to the front office with your i.d., and your child will be brought to the office. If you want someone else to pick up your child, they must be on the emergency card list.

Do you celebrate student birthdays at school?

Students receive a pencil and a free snack coupon at the beginning of their birthday month. Please note that we do not allow children to receive balloons or flowers at school. Please also note that we do not allow any kinds of snacks to be brought to school to celebrate a birthday.

Can I have lunch with my child at school?

We love to have families join us for lunch! Just stop by the front office to sign in before proceeding to the cafeteria. If your child is at recess, please stay by the cafeteria doors or picnic tables to wait. Please note that you must be on the emergency contact list to have lunch with a child. If you would like to bring in outside food for your child, we ask that you sit at separate designated tables to eat rather than at the class table. Your child may invite one friend to join them if eating inside. If you choose to eat outside, you may only take your child.

Can my child take medication at school?

Children may only receive medication in the clinic. A parent or guardian must bring a doctor’s note with the medication that includes time and dosage information. Medication must be left in our locked cabinet in the clinic.

What if my child has forgotten his/her lunch?

Your child will be given a school lunch. It will be charged to your account and repayment will be expected as soon as possible.
