Student will not be admitted into class until medical note is received. Any contagious disease must be reported as soon as diagnosed.

Parents are encouraged to schedule vacations that coincide with the school calendar. Academic work will not be taught in classroom when child returns from vacation.


Scholastic Testing Program
All students in Grades 2 through 8 are tested in Math and Language Arts via  Renaissance , a totally online platform. These progressive tests demonstrate a student’s academic growth throughout the school year. Due to the nature of the testing, students must be present in school during each of the test periods listed below.

Chronic Lateness
Students will be marked tardy if not seated in classroom by 7:40 am. Upon late arrival, students must report to the School Office for an admittance slip to class.

NB: Parents will be notified if a child consistently fails to report to school on time. The only exception is when tardiness is caused by the school bus.
