The earliest students can be dropped off at school is 8:40 AM. After 8:45 AM, students should go directly to classrooms or to the cafeteria if purchasing breakfast.
Our school day begins promptly at 8:55 AM, so please try to be on time!
Tardy students MUST BE brought to the office and signed in prior to going to class. A secretary will notify the classroom teacher prior to sending the child to the classroom to ensure his/her safe arrival.
Reporting an Absence/Tardy
Parents/Guardians are asked to call the school each morning to report that a child is absent or tardy.
Please note new State Regulations - Connecticut State Law holds parents or guardians responsible for students attending school regularly during the hours and times that school is in session and it holds schools responsible for reporting this information to the district and state. In addition, Connecticut State Statute 10-220, Section C, holds schools responsible for reporting this information to the district and state. Current law defines truant as a student who has four unexcused absences in a month or ten unexcused absences in a school year. Please note, that a child’s first nine absences can be excused by a parent/guardian phone call; however all absences beyond absence number nine requires official written documentation ( i.e. doctor’s note, court papers…) in order to be excused.
