TARDY AND EARLY DISMISSAL POLICY

It is extremely important for students to attend school regularly and to be at school the full school day. When they are on time in the morning, they are able to get settled in and organized to get a good start on the day with the rest of the class. The last 20 minutes of the day are important to make sure they have their assignments, to review what they've learned that day, and to talk about the next day's plans. Teachers lose valuable time when making up lessons and assignments for students who are excessively tardy, leave early or are absent. Parents can be helpful by scheduling their child's appointments after school when possible, or on days when school is not in session.

TARDIES
A student who arrives after 8:05 a.m. is tardy and must be checked in by the parent at the office before going to the classroom. Each tardy is documented.

EARLY DISMISSALS
If you wish to pick your child up from school early, please make certain the reason is important and not just for convenience. Each early dismissal will be documented.
Students who attend each school day during a nine-week period will receive recognition for "Perfect Attendance" at the nine-week Awards Assembly. If a student has no lates or early leaves during the quarter, then that student will be recognized with a gold star on the certificate.

IF YOU MUST PICK YOUR CHILD UP EARLY, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES:

1. Report to the office - NOT the classroom.

2. Your child(ren) will be released only to the person whose name is specified in the note sent to the teacher.

3. Someone from the office will send for your child(ren) after your arrival.

4. Sign the student(s) out of school and give a reason for the early dismissal on the form proved in the office. This is for the safety and protection of your child(ren), should they need to be located at a later time.

5. Be prepared to show photo ID if requested. This procedure will help insure that the child(ren) leave school with properly designated persons.

MEDICATION/STUDENT INJURIES
Tylenol will only be given to students by staff members at school if the student has the original bottle labeled Tylenol. A parental medication form must also be completed. The Tylenol dose cannot exceed the recommended dose on the bottle. No aspirin, herbs, and other forms of pain relief medicine will be given to students by staff members at school. Legal concerns regarding responsibility and liability in the event of health complications from the medication make the practice questionable, and therefore improper.
We encourage you to try to adjust your child's medication schedule so that it does not have to be administered during the school day. Should you be unable to do this, a medication form (obtained from school) must be completed by the parents and the student's physician (for long-term medications). For short-term medications, such as antibiotics, a doctor's note indicating medication, time, and dates to be given at school must be sent along with the medication in the original labeled bottle. School personnel cannot exceed the recommended dosage on the container when administering medication without a doctor's note. Medications cannot be sent on the bus. If a student has a health condition which requires the student to self-medicate (ex: inhaler, insulin, glucometer, etc.), the proper procedure must be followed with our school nurse overseeing each particular student situation.
Minor injuries will be examined and first-aid will be administered in the office. Parents will be contacted if it is questionable whether the child should remain at school, or if there is a possibility that the injury may require the attention of a doctor. School personnel are not allowed to remove ticks or splinters, so parents will be called if one is found on their child.
If your child has a chronic illness, such as asthma, diabetes, heart problems, or life-threatening allergies, please inform your child's teacher immediately.
