Drop off is by the victory bell.  P.M. For after school pick up, you have two options:  1) park in the street if you are waiting for a student to come out 2) park in a parking spot if you need to go into the office or wait by the doors for your student to come out When students can enter the building: School doors open for breakfast @ 7:20. Students can enter classrooms at 7:35.  Students need to be in their classroom by 7:45 or they will be marked tardy. Every fifth tardy will result in an after school detention. A tardy becomes an absence after 10 minutes.  Weather:  Please pay attention to area weather predictions Dress students appropriately (winter coats, snow pants, boots) because they will be going outside for lunch recess AND possibly for academic activities or extra outdoor time. Our cutoff temperature for sending kids outside is: 10 degrees (wind chill is taken into consideration) We will not go out in the rain. Illness/Medication: Keep home or will be sent home when: Temp is 100 degrees - can come back when they are fever free without fever reducing medication for 24 hours Vomit/Diarrhea - can come back after 24 hours without the aid of medicine.   If your student needs to have medication, it needs to come straight to the office in the original container; if your student rides the bus, the medication needs to be given to the bus driver upon entering the bus. Your student MUST have the medication form filled out to be kept on file (this is the law).  The school does not provide ANY medication for students (this includes Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc.).
