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.
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 at this location. Please make arrangements with older siblings if picking up their younger siblings at the kinder circle at dismissal time. Please stress the importance of notifying the teacher before walking away with a younger sibling.
Any changes in the way that your child gets home must be provided in a written note. This may be done on a separate sheet of paper or in your child's communication folder. If a change occurs during the school day, please notify the school office. They will then notify the teacher. Most days, I am unable to answer the phone or check e-mail messages until after school. I do not want to risk missing a change in the way your child gets home and causing any inconvience.
Students are tardy at 7:50 and must have a pass from the main office to be admitted to class. It is extremely important that you child arrives to school on time. Students are released promptly at 8:00 for SFA.
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 the afterschool C.A.R.E. program. 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 assignment. 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 not 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.
