The current Primary Montessori class will also add twelve new 4K students next year. We will have a total of 24 - 4K slots and 12 - 5K slots. Students who are currently in 4K will be eligible for the 5K Montessori class. If parents are interested in your child attending either the 4K or 5K Montessori class, you must attend the last meeting on May 13 at 6:00. This is a mandatory meeting, and parents will only get a Montessori application by attending this meeting. The meeting will beheld in the Montessori class which is behind the gym. Parents can park in the back behind the classroom. Please call the school (752-2711) if you have any questions.

TEACHER OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to Megan Bley for being chosen the 2012 Teacher of the Year!
Please carefully read the new board policy on school tardies. Beginning January 10, 2012, every 3 unexcused tardies will turn into 1 unexcused absence. Three unexcused early dismissals will turn into 1 unexcused absence. An early dismissal for a doctor’s appointment will be excused provided the parent sends a doctor’s excuse when the child returns to school. If your child is sent home early by the school nurse, that early dismissal will also be excused. Any other dismissals will be unexcused. Once a student receives 5 unexcused absences they are considered truant and can receive an official attendance referral. If you have questions about this new policy, do not hesitate to contact the school and we will be happy to talk with you about it.
Code JHA Issued 01/12
Purpose: To establish the basic structure for dealing with tardiness by students
K through eighth grade students (tardy to school)
Students who are chronically late to school often suffer academically from lost instructional time. For this reason, a record should be kept of all tardies to school. When tardies become excessive in the opinion of the principal, he/she, in consultation with appropriate staff, will counsel the parent/legal guardian.
If after this counseling the student is persistently tardy, the principal will notify the parent/legal guardian and an intervention plan to correct the problem will be written.
If the parent/legal guardian fails to comply with the intervention plan, the principal at his/her discretion may refer the case to proper authorities for educational neglect.
For purposes of this policy, three unexcused tardies to school will constitute one unexcused absence. Additionally, three unexcused early dismissal sign-outs will constitute one unexcused absence. Unexcused tardies or early sign-outs are those that would not qualify as “lawful absences” under board policy.
