Field Trips are planned by teachers and designed to enrich the curriculum. Parents sign a permission slip upon enrollment and students are told in advance of any scheduled field trips with details such as place, departure and return times, and other special information.
Children are not allowed to use the telephone unless an emergency exists. ( We ask that you not call the school and request to talk with your child or have a message given to your child except in the case of an emergency.) Students may have cell phones, but they cannot use them during the school day. Many teachers securely stores students' cell phones during the school day.
If you change your address, home phone number, work number, or change jobs, please notify the secretary or teacher. We must be able to get hold of a parent in case of emergency or if the child is sick or hurt.

The cooperation of parents in seeing that books and materials are returned to school would be appreciated. When students lose or damage books or other school property, financial responsibility for such loss or damage is that of the student and the parent.
Students are welcome to ride bikes, roller blades or scooters to school with parental consent. We ask that they do not ride them on school property for the safety of others. They should dismount and walk the bike to the racks where it must be locked up securely. Roller blades must be taken off before coming onto school property or entering the school. The school is NOT responsible for damage to or theft of bicycles, roller blades or scooters.
Each year many nice items of clothing are left at school and cannot be returned to the owners since there are no names on the items. Please protect the investment you make in your children's clothing by labeling each item clearly.
