Grades K - 5- 8:15 AM to 3:15 PM
School doors open at 8:15 AM for students. Students should not plan to arrive to school before 8:15 AM. Students who are not in their classrooms by 8:35 AM will be considered tardy. Please make sure your child arrives to school on time.
In the event that a child is late more than three times, the parent will be notified to make them aware of the situation and an after school detention will be assigned.
Our school operates on a 5-DAY SCHEDULE. Your child’s classroom teacher will provide you with a schedule that indicates which special area class they have each day. In the event of a school closing, the 5-DAY cycle is not interrupted. To view the 5-Day cycle and the schedule for all classes, please click on the attachments at the bottom of this page.
BUILDING ENTRANCE & SECURITY
In an effort to maintain a safe environment for our children, we strictly adhere to our building entrance security procedures. The only entrance to the building, which will be utilized by the public during school hours, is the front entrance on Mapleview Road. The rear door entrance, located off the back parking lot, will be a morning drop off and an afternoon pick up location for parents/guardians who bring their children to school. This entrance will not be available as an entry point into the school between 8:45 AM and 3:00 PM. All access to the building during these hours will occur at the Elementary School main entrance on Mapleview Road.
CHANGES IN YOUR CHILD’S ROUTINE
If your child’s daily schedule is changed, i.e. walking home, riding home with a different person, or visiting a friend before going home, parents are required to inform the school and to provide the office with a written, dated note. If an emergency arises, please call us immediately.
Should it be necessary for your child to be excused from school early, a written request for early dismissal is required. Students will be dismissed early ONLY FROM THE MAIN OFFICE. Parents must come to the main office, and photo identification is required when picking up your child from school.
SCHOOL AND BUS RULES
Parents, teachers, and staff share the responsibility of creating a safe and caring school environment. Parents are provided with a copy of the Code of Conduct at the start of the school year. In addition, the school rules and bus rules/Peaceful School Bus Program, which have been derived from the Code of Conduct, are provided so that parents understand the expectations that we have for their children. The fair and consistent implementation of these rules and consequences for not following them is necessary to ensure that all children are able to learn and succeed at Cleveland Hill Elementary.
