Attendance Reminder for All Parents and Students

Please remember the importance of your child attending school all day, every day!  In order for a student to be counted present for the entire day, students must be at school for at least 3 hours and 31 minutes.  If you want your child counted present for the day, you cannot sign them out before 12:06 in the afternoon.  If you need to come to school late one day, you must arrive before 12:04 to be counted present for the entire school day!  We want to encourage families to try to schedule appointments for students after school or on school holidays, if at all possible.  Remember, those students who do not miss a day of school and who do not receive a tardy or get dismissed early, will be recognized each 9 weeks as one of our “All Day, Every Day Tigers!”  They will receive a special surprise!

EMES Car Rider Tags and Car Circle Information

Welcome back to school!  We want to remind everyone who participates in our Car Circle to make sure that you have picked up and are displaying your EMES Car Rider tag.  We have received new tags this year!  Last year’s car tags will not work for this year’s car riders.  You must receive a new tag and update your information in the office, if you have not already done so this school year.  Please remember that no students will be released in the car rider line to anyone (parents included) who do not have their car rider tags.  If you do not have your tag with you, then you must go into the office to dismiss your child.  Please also remember that parents and guardians must remain in their vehicle at all times, because of safety reasons.  Please teach your child how to buckle his/ her seatbelt or you may drive to the front part of the lower parking lot to get out and buckle your child.  All children will be loaded from the passenger side of your car.

Morning drop-off is from 8:15 until 8:35.  Do not leave your child unattended in the mornings.  Teachers will come outside at 8:15, to begin receiving students.  Afternoon pick up begins at 3:20.  If you do lose your car tag, please come into the office and pay the $5.00 replacement fee for a new tag.  Only people listed on your child’s Emergency Card are allowed to pick up your student!  We appreciate your help and cooperation to make our Car Circle the best it can be!
