What to do "IF"

Here is what to do "IF":

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM: Call your child's school to arrange a conference with your child's teacher.

A STUDENT BECOMES ILL AT SCHOOL: A student who becomes ill during school hours is taken to the nurse's office. If it becomes necessary to send your child home because of illness, you will be notified and requested to provide transportation for the child. The phone number of an alternate responsible adult must be available to the school.

YOU WANT HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS: You may get this information by calling the school by 10:00 a.m. and leaving a message for the teacher. Assignments will be available for pick-up in the school office at the end of the school day.

A PUPIL IS ABSENT: Please call the school within the first hour of the school day or the first day of the child's absence. Also, please send a note listing the dates of absence and the reasons for the absence with your child when he returns to school.

EXTENDED ABSENCE BY PUPIL: If a student is expected to be out of school for a prolonged period due to illness or accident, home instruction may be available. Parents are asked to call the office of the principal for more information. If you anticipate long absence, call the office immediately so that provisions for homebound instruction can be made.

YOU WANT A MESSAGE DELIVERED: Only emergency messages may be delivered to students. In case of emergency, give the message to the building principal or the building secretary and it will be transmitted to the student.

A LUNCH IS LEFT AT HOME: Deliver it to the school office. Students who leave lunches at home are responsible for coming to the office to claim them.

YOUR CHILD LOSES SOMETHING AT SCHOOL: All items found are put in a Lost and Found located in the school (HAS) cafeteria. Pupils may claim lost articles before or after school.

YOUR CHILD LOSES SOMETHING ON A SCHOOL BUS: Call the school office and report the loss. The article will be traced from this point and you will be notified if it is found.

YOUR CHILD NEEDS TO RETURN TO SCHOOL AFTER DISMISSAL: Students who wish to return to school after dismissal must report to the building principal for permission to re-enter their classroom. If possible the parent should accompany the child. Under no circumstance will students be permitted to return to their classroom after 3:30 p.m.

YOU CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS OR TELEPHONE NUMBER: Please advise your school office immediately.

IF A CHILD IS ILL: Children who have been sick during the night or who display symptoms of illness in the morning (i.e. fever, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite) should not be sent to school.

YOU PLAN TO MOVE: Please contact the school office for information regarding the procedure which is to be followed for transferring a child.

YOU NEED CLARIFICATION ON A PROCEDURE OR POLICY: Call the building principal for an answer.
