Parents & Students
Student Arrival, Student Dismissal & Check-Ins/Outs
School doors will open promptly at 7:25 a.m. and students may begin arriving at that time. No student supervision is available before 7:25 a.m. The school and teachers are responsible for your student during school hours only.
Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria beginning at 7:25 a.m. Students not eating breakfast should report directly to the auditorium. Students will be supervised in the auditorium from 7:25 a.m. to 7:50 a.m. Parents will not be allowed in the auditorium during this time.
OBE’s Extended Day Program offers morning supervision from 6:30-7:25 a.m. for families who are in need an earlier drop off. Please contact Mrs. Deana Jones for rates and additional information.
Students will be considered late at 7:51 a.m. Students who arrive late miss valuable instructional time and interrupt the educational setting of the classroom. Help teach positive habits by insisting that your son/daughter be in class by 7:50 a.m. Excused tardies are for medical purposes only.
Any student arriving after 7:51 a.m. and before 8:05 am will report directly to their classroom. Any student(s) arriving after 8:05 a.m. should be accompanied by their parent/guardian and report to the attendance office for a late pass. This request is for the safety and security of our students, as school personnel are unaware of late arrivals until students enter the attendance office or classroom.
If a student needs to leave school during the school day, a parent/guardian or designated adult must report to the main office to check the student out. Please be prepared to show identification at the time of checkout. Only adults designated on the student’s emergency card and who know the Kid Kode will be allowed to check out the student. Parents are urged to keep early check outs to an minimum, as each call into a classroom for early dismissal causes a disruption to the learning environment.
All staff members have been instructed not to excuse a student to anyone without specific permission from the office. In order to prevent the loss of valuable instructional time, students will not be called out of the classroom until a parent or designee arrives. Please avoid picking students up during the last fifteen minutes of the school day. Instruction takes place throughout the entire school day (7:50 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.).
