Attendance is Important! Please bring your child

Students who are tardy must check in at the
office. We reward with popsicles or free dress
the class with 12 tardy free days. Any absence
requires a note upon return or call the school
to report an absence at (909) 598-3661. Kindergar
ten classrooms open at 800am.
Pick-up Policy. Students will be released from
the inside their classrooms at 125 pm (Tuesdays
and any other early day is 100pm
dismissal) Teachers will call each childs name
and give a Hi-5 to dismiss. Your child will
only be released to persons listed on the
emergency card unless you notify the school of
any changes. Students may not be released to

be escorted to the office. Bussers will be

in telephone numbers, emergency contacts or
address listings. Notify your childs teacher
of any events that may be affecting your childs
learning and/or behavior. Your childs teacher
is available for brief notices before classroom
doors open and after school when all students
