I would like to remind our parents and community members of the most important dates to remember for the 2014-2015 school year. The following are the highlights of the new calendar:
- Students begin classes on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - The last day of student attendance will be Wednesday, June 16, 2015 (pending snow days) - Parent-Teacher Conference Days are November 12th and April 16th - Winter break will be from December 22nd to January 2nd - Spring Break will be from April 6th to April 10th
We are noticing that many students are coming to the building extremely late. I want to remind you that students are considered late to school if they arrive to the building after 7:45 am. Also, please note that students who leave schoolbefore 11:15 a.m. will be marked as a full day of absence. Students arriving after 10 am, or leaving before 2:30 p.m. will be marked as ½ day absent. Starting the first week of December, we are going to attach a bar code tag to your child’s book bag. The bar code tag will be used to track tardies. We are trying this system to decrease the amount of time students who are tardy are spending waiting for the tardy slip. There are days that we have so many students tardy, that the students can wait up to fifteen minutes for their tardy slip. We would appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that your child does not remove the tag from their book bag.
