Important Tidbits

Late Arrivals/Change of Pickup Plans: When children arrive after 8:00 a.m., it is not only detrimental to their daily educational experience, it is also disruptive (and discourteous) to the educational experience of classmates. If K-8 students arrive after 8:00 a.m., they must be escorted into Moody Hall by a parent who signs them in at the main office. Plans for picking up students should be finalized before the day begins. Messages relayed to a child’s classroom also disturbs his/her class during an important segment of the learning day. Therefore, messages will be given only on an emergency basis. -Mark Ravelli
