Breakfast is served to all students from 7:15am – 7:35am. Please do not have students arrive any later than 7:35am if they are eating breakfast. This will help ensure students are in their classroom by 7:45am and ready to learn. Students who ar-rive to breakfast late and are still in the Café after the 7:45 bell rings, will be marked tardy that day.
Please remember we cannot allow students to be dismissed between 2:45 – 3:00pm. If your child has an appointment, the front office will work with you with regard to dismissal. The dismissal bell rings at 3:00 pm and this is when the students will be dismissed.
Hug-n-Home Lane Visor Tags
If you do not have a window sign for your child, please let the teacher or the front office know. These signs help teachers to match up and identify the correct car and individual with whom the student will be going home with at the end of the school day.
Please remember to call the school as soon as you know that your child will be absent or tardy that day. If you know in advance, please send in a note to the teacher and/or the front office so that the absence can be documented properly.
If your child has a doctor/dental appt. please ask for an appointment note and turn that into the front office, as well.
You may reach us at 785-717-4450 or email us at dawnstephens@usd475.org or melissanelson@usd475.org
