Published: 3 years 156 days ago For children’s safety, it is very important that the following procedures be consistently followed. Thank you!

Picking Up Your Child Early from School?
Parents/guardians must sign their child out at the office. Staff will call the classroom to have your child dismissed. Please wait for him or her in the office. We will not dismiss children to cars waiting out front and parents are asked not to go to the classroom to get their child. All of these measures help us keep your children safe.

Child Going To a Different Place After School?
Your child must bring a written note from you indicating where the child is going. Same day notes indicating a child is to ride home on the bus with a friend are not accepted, as those arrangements must be made five days in advance. (Please see Transportation Reminders in this newsletter.) If there is any confusion as to a child’s transportation arrangements home on a given day, we will phone a parent/guardian to get clarification. Calls home by students are for emergencies only.

Last Minute Change of Plans?
Please call the office and notify us before 3:15 pm. This is very important so your child knows what to do at dismissal time. Our number is 269-337-0610.

Child Absent?
Please call our office (269-337-0610) when your child is going to be absent. Also, you must send a note explaining the absence when your child returns to school.

Child Late?
Please be sure your child is at the bus stop or at school on time every day. Classes start at 8:50 a.m., and we need everyone here. (The breakfast program runs from the time students arrive in the building to about 9:00 a.m.) Adults must sign children in at the office who arrive after 8:50 a.m. Please do not send your child to the office without an adult if he/she is arriving late. Thank you.

Dismissal Procedures
It is important students and teachers complete their day together in a peaceful, orderly fashion, so we ask parents to meet their children at the front of the school. Students waiting for pick-up will be by the flagpole. Children are not allowed to wait across Nichols Road for rides.

All Visitors Must Sign In At The Office Please!
When school is in session, come to the main door by the flag pole. Push the button. A voice will greet you. Please identify yourself. When you hear a click, come in the right door. Be sure to sign in at the office. This is for the safety of all and so we can find you quickly if you receive an emergency call.
