School Hours

• I will pick up students outside the classroom at 7:45 each morning. 

 Student Drop Off /Student Pick Up:

Parents are asked to drop off and pick up their child at the Pre-K/kinder circle near the back playground and first grade building.  Prekindergarten and kindergarten students arrive at the same time, but are dismissed at 2:30, so there shouldn't be a problem with traffic. Siblings are asked to pick up their younger sibling at the Pre-K/kinder circle. Please stress the importance of notifying the teacher before walking away with their younger sibling.

 Tardies

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.

Attendance

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.

 Unexcused Absences

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. 

Excused Absences

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.
