• I will pick up students outside the classroom at 7:45 each morning.
Student Drop Off
Please keep all children safe at school. The student drop-off area for first grade is at the front circle near the flagpole (Kenly Ave). Students riding the bus to school in the morning will also be dropped off at this area.
Student Pick Up: Parents are asked to pick up their child at the kinder circle near the back playground and first grade building. Please do not drop your child off at this location. Prekindergarten and kindergarten students arrive at the same time, but are dismissed at 2:30, so there shouldn't be a problem with traffic. Please make arrangements with older siblings if picking up their younger siblings. Siblings are asked to pick up their younger sibling at the kinder circle. Please stress the importance of notifying the teacher before walking away with their younger sibling.
Students are tardy at 7:50 a.m. and must have a pass from the main office to be admitted to class. It is extremely important that your child arrives to school on time. Students are released promptly at 7:55 a.m. for SFA(Success For All) reading class. If your child arrives after 8:00 a.m., he/she should go directly to their assigned SFA reading class.
Students who are not ill are expected to be at school each day and on time. Texas Education Code 25.09a states that students who are absent 10% or more of school days may not pass to the next grade level, even if he/she obtains passing grades. Please bring a doctor's note or a parent note after any absence. Absences of 3 days or more need special permission from the school principal.
Policy on making up unexcused work is stated in the Lackland Elementary handbook as: • Work for unexcused absences will be sent home. Students have the same number of days to complete the work as they were absent. Work that is not completed in the designated amount of time, must be completed in C.A.R.E. • C.A.R.E stands for Completing Assignments and Reaching Expectations. Your child's teacher will notify you when your child will be staying after school to complete their assignments. Arrangements will be made during this time as to how your child will be getting home. C.A.R.E is located in room 406 and is Monday-Friday from 3:15-4:25.
If a student has an excused absence, or an unusual circumstance, he/she may make up missed work with no penalties. Please bring a doctor's note or a parent note after any absence. Absences of 3 days or more need special permission from the school principal.
Signing Out Students
Please send a note or notify your child's teacher ahead of time if you have scheduled an appointment for your child during school hours or if your child must leave school early. It is very difficult to stop instruction to gather work for your child on short notice.
