Parent & Students
Student Drop Off & Pick Up
Parents/Guardians who drive students to school are asked to pull as far forward as possible in the loop prior to drop-off and pick-up. Only bike riders are permitted to leave through the center gate. Please drive with caution and adhere to the posted speed limits for your safety, as well as for the safety of every child and staff member.
Signing In & Out
Our school strictly enforces sign-in procedures for all visitors. All visitors are required to come to the front office and sign-in on our computer where a name tag will be printed for you. Our goal is to maintain a safe and secure campus for our students and staff, and we ask for your cooperation in this effort.
Student Check Outs
We would like to introduce you to a new system our school has acquired to help protect your children. The Visitor Management System helps track guests, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our school, thus providing a safer and more monitored environment for the students.
When visitors, volunteers, contractors or parents/guardians check-in they will be required to present a valid state issued ID for entering into the system. The system has the ability to provide alerts on people who may jeopardize the safety of the campus.
We feel certain this will help us keep our campus safe, and ask for your cooperation in presenting your valid state issued ID when checking in at our school.
Regular school attendance is vital to a child's success in school. When a child is absent from school due to illness, the parent must call the school on the date of the illness to report the absence. If a child misses more than 15 days of school per year, parents must provide a doctor's note to excuse further absences. Excused absences are acceptable, but unexcused absences can become a problem.
If a child accumulates a minimum of 15 unexcused absences within 90 days, it violates Florida's Compulsory School Attendance Law. The violation could have legal consequences for the parent and/or the student. The School Board has recently adopted more specific policies for excessive unexcused tardies. These absences will now count towards the unexcused absence count. For example, 5 unexcused tardies will equal 1 unexcused absence.
Please help us improve our students' rate of attendance. The more our children attend school, the more they learn. Contact your school social worker, teacher, or guidance counselor if you need help getting your child to attend school regularly and on-time every day.
