MLK Early Release Days
On Wednesday Early Release Days, the dismissal time will be 1:55PM.

Late Policy
It is very important that each student arrive in his/her classroom, ready to begin school, by 7:55AM. A student who arrives after 7:55AM should go to the office with his/her parent(s) to get a late slip before going to the classroom.

Absence
Field DayWhen a child will be absent, a parent is requested to call the school and give the date(s), and anticipated length of absence. Parents may leave a message on the answering machine after or before school hours. The School Department Policy requires that families send a note explaining the circumstances of the absence to the teacher upon their child's return to school in order for an absence to be considered an excused absence.
 
Recess
Each class will go outside almost every day. Please make sure children are dressed for cold weather when it arrives.

Changes in Afternoon Plans
Changes in students' schedules that require bus changes need to be made in writing to the classroom teacher in the morning. Afternoon changes cause confusion for students, families and staff and can compromise student safety.

Conferences and Reports
The teachers will schedule conferences with parents in the fall and in the spring, or as necessary to share information with parents about a child's experiences in school. We see these conferences as a way to learn from parents about their children and the goals parents have for their children's education, as well as a chance for teachers to share the child's learning at school.
