Home Instruction

The School system will provide instruction at home for children who are physically disabled or who are unable to attend school.  In order to receive such instruction at home, a child must be absent for more than ten days before a parent can apply for home instruction.  If you know that your child is going to be absent for more than ten days and feel that home instruction is necessary, please contact the school office for further information.

Building Safety - Sign Ins

All visitors and volunteers should come directly to the office to sign in and get a badge.  For safety reasons, we need to know about every adult who enters the building.  When leaving, please sign out and return your badge.

School Parking Lot and Driveway

Drop off and pick up children on Gale Road only.  The parking lot is very small and crowded.  It is almost impossible to turn your car around.  Do not drive into the parking lot unless you need handicap parking.  Do not park in the staff parking lot from 8:00 a.m. -2:30 p.m.  There is not even enough space for staff.

There is absolutely no parking in the fire lanes.  The driveway is the only access the Fire Department has to the rear of the school.  Police Department will ticket cars in this area.  Do not block the chain which closes off the rear playground.  This is a fire truck access.

Throughout the school year Sharpe Road and Gale Road are "one way."
