If the school does not receive a message, we will call parents at home or work to let you know that your child is not at school. Since teachers do not always have a chance to check email before and during the school day, use the contact us buttons on this page to alert us of any changes in your child's attendance.
Please drop your child off after 8:25 a.m. We encourage all carpool students to arrive by 8:30 a.m. Instruction begins at 8:35 a.m. If you arrive after 8:35 a.m., you are considered tardy and an adult must sign the student in at the office.
Because of the unique nature of the School in the Woods program, when your child misses school, he or she may miss outdoor science experiences which are impossible to make up. So, if at all possible, we ask that you not plan for your child to miss school for vacations or other optional absences. If you still find it necessary to prearrange school absences, you must complete an “Absence Notification Form” which is available in our office. Please try to schedule doctor, dentist, and other appointments after school. If you must schedule an appointment during school hours, it would be best to arrange for your child to return to school by noon, since much of our outdoor field learning will take place in the afternoon.
