Temporary Bus Schedule
This morning, January 6, 2015, we were notified that our Red Bus driver resigned without notice. At this time Leon County Transportation is unable to assist us with our routes and we are moving to a temporary schedule effective Wednesday, January 7, 2015. We are taking all steps in hiring a reliable and safe driver for our school.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause our families and hope to have our regular schedule back in effect as soon as possible. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Julie Davis at Julie.email@example.com or 877-5187.

Early Pick Up Reminders
As referenced in the attendance policy of the Parent/Student Handbook, if you need to take your child out of school before the end of the school day, come to the school office and sign him/her out and a school employee will send for your child. Students will not be dismissed from the classroom to the parent. No early dismissals will be permitted after 2:30 p.m. for any students. An unexcused absence takes place any time a child is out of school for reasons not recognized by law. This includes early release. Any time a student returns to school after an absence, a note MUST be brought from home. Unexcused absenteeism sufficient enough to jeopardize academic progress at the elementary level is defined as a student being absent without an acceptable reason five (5) times in a calendar month or ten (10) times in a 90-calendar day period.
