Instructional time is sacred

Instruction begins sharply at 7:55 am each day. Parents, please support your child so they can be on time to class by 7:50 am. Show them you think school is important by departing their classrooms by 7:55 am so instruction can begin.
Please report directly to the office if bringing a item for your child. The office staff will notify the classroom teacher an item has arrived and the item will be delivered to the classroom during a break in the instructional period. This will eliminate any disruption to the students’ instructional blocks.
Thank you for honoring the instructional day and every precious moment of uninterrupted learning.

Cell Phones

The school has a NO CELL PHONE policy during instructional hours.
If your child is allowed a cell phone, the cell phone shall remain OFF and IN your child’s backpack during the school day. Before school and after school cell phone use to contact parent/guardian is allowed after receiving permission from school personnel in the drop/off and pick/up areas only. If the cell rings during instruction, the teacher will confiscate the cell phone, turn it in to the Vice Principal, who will call you for pick up. Thank you for your support.


Items that are harmful or a distraction to learning are considered contraband and therefore not allowed at school. These include but are not limited to:
  • Yu-gi-oh/Pokemon/playing and trading cards
  • iPads/iPods/hand held gaming devices/music players/radios
  • Video recorders/speakers/ear plugs
  • Toys including kendamas
  • Laser pointers
  • Skateboards/heeleys/roller skates
  • Mouth spray/deodorant/perfumes and colognes
  • Large amounts of money or valuables
  • Sports equipment
  • Fidget spinners
Consequences include parent notification, detention, and confiscation of contraband items. Students should bring only items needed for school, such as books and supplies. It is helpful to check your child’s backpack regularly for contraband items.

Make-Up Assignments

If a child is absent for three or more school days, parents may contact the office to request make-up assignments. The office clerk forwards the request to the classroom teacher. Classroom teacher prepares the assignment packet for pick-up by 2:45 pm on the day following receipt of the request.
If the absence is less than three days, teachers will communicate make-up expectations with the child upon his/her return to school.
Please be aware that no make-up assignment is equivalent to missed instruction provided by our teachers. Further, our teachers adjust the pace and content of their instruction based on student learning needs. Consequently, we recommend that requests for make-up assignments be made upon the return from a long absence.
