FAQ

What are the school hours?

School begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. We ask that students be in their seats by 8:00 a.m. or we count them tardy. Please do not arrive on campus before 7:30 a.m. and please leave campus once school is out, unless you have reason to stay for after-school sports or other school-sponsored activities.

 We ask parents to drop kids off in the morning in the designated area by the front office. Please do not pick up your students in the bussing zones or the staff parking areas located north of the sixth grade buildings.

What should I do if my student is absent?

When at all possible, please notify us when your child is absent by calling us before 9:00 a.m. at (928) 684-6747. Absent students need to return with a note explaining the reason for being gone. An absence note is a must! Otherwise, we record your student's absence as "unexcused."

What if my student is tardy?

We encourage promptness since tardies affect everyone and disrupt classroom time. Late students must report to the office and sign in as late. Afterward, we will issue the student a "Tardy Slip" before he/she goes to class.

If I need to take my child out of school early, what steps should I follow?

Check in with the front office to let us know you want to take your student out of school early. Once you arrive in our office, you must show us photo identification and then we will notify the classroom teacher to send your student to the office. We will not dismiss students to walk alone to either go home or to appointments. You must be present to check out your child.

What should I know about my student's textbooks?

We issue your student textbooks at the start of school and he/she is responsible for it until returning it to the teacher. Students are responsible for lost or damaged books. We reserve the right to withhold report cards, school records, and promotion exercises until the student pays the damage or replacement textbook fees.

Where is the lost and found?

Please check the designated area inside the school cafeteria for anything that your child has lost. We encourage parents to check for these missing items when they happen to be on campus. To prevent lost items, please put your name on all personal belongings such as coats, lunch boxes, backpacks, etc. We donate unclaimed items twice a year to a local charitable organization.

My child needs to take medication daily. How will you make sure he/she will receive it?

Please label all prescription medications and keep them in the school health office. Only our school nurse will hand out the medicine to a student. Prescription medicines must be prescribed by a doctor and have documentation telling how much and how often the student must take the medicine. Please be sure to contact the health office ahead of time if you want your child taking over-the-counter medicines, too.
