Please remember that student arrival begins at 8:35 a.m. and our final bell rings at 8:45 a.m. If your student is not in the room and in his/her seat ready to learn when the final bell rings, he/she will be marked tardy. When students arrive late, they miss out on our morning meeting and essential instructions to the day’s lesson. A top priority at our school is student achievement and maximizing instructional minutes. Tardies are a major disruption to the learning environment and student learning. In addition, the learning stops while the tardy student settles into his/her seat. This can significantly reduce achievement, regardless of academic ability. Your child may also feel awkward arriving to the classroom when everyone else is settled. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call. Thank you for your support and cooperation.
