The use of our agenda/planner is to promote home and school communication, as well as to assist your child in learning organizational skills. Please plan to look at your child’s agenda daily and sign it. This will be an informational tool enabling you to stay aware of what’s happening in your child’s class.
Attendance & Tardiness
Florida State Law requires all students to be in regular attendance. The importance of regular attendance cannot be overemphasized. A child should be in school every day he/she is physically able. Vacations, trips, routine doctor and dentist appointments, should be planned so that students do not miss school. Promptness to class is necessary for the student to take full advantage of available educational opportunities.
All students should be on campus in time to be in class at 8:00 am. Instruction, organization and preparation for the day begin immediately.
Change of Address & Emergency Information
It is imperative that your child’s emergency information card is kept up-to-date. Let the office know of any address or phone number changes.
Clinic & Medications
Our school provides a first-aid clinic that is operated by a clinic aide and our office staff. Please keep in mind that we do not have a full-time nurse at school. Parents will be contacted by phone when it is necessary for a child to go home.
Medications should be taken at school only when necessary to control chronic conditions as acute illness, where failure to take it could jeopardize the student’s health. When sending medicine to school all prescription medications must be in the original container from the pharmacy.
All parents and visitors must present a photo ID at the main office when coming on the school campus at any time. All visitors are to wear a visitor’s tag while on campus.
