May I bring in outside food during my child's lunch?
We support the Wellness Program and therefore ask that you do not bring fast food into the school.
Birthdays are exciting for students. If parents want to bring a treat in for the class, it must be given out at lunchtime. Store-bought treats brought in for the class should be pre-arranged with your child’s teacher and may only be shared with your child’s class. Please be aware of allergy restrictions in your child’s class when selecting treats. (No balloons are permitted.)
What constitutes a "full day" of attendance?
To be counted present for the whole day, students must attend for at least the equivalent of half the school day. This does not have to be continuous time.
What constitutes an "excused" absence?
- Personal illness of a student
- Serious illness or death of a student's family member
- Celebrating a religious holiday
How do I notify the school of a transportation change?
A note from a parent/guardian (signed and dated with the date of the change of transportation), is required for any change to be made. This includes one day changes of transportation (i.e. bus rider to car rider/car rider to walker/bus rider to daycare, etc...)
If the child will be making a permanent change, the parent must fill out a county change of transportation form. We cannot accept a note for a permanent change but must have the parent/guardian either visit the front office or go to MyPaymentsPlus to fill out the form.
Who can pick up my child from school?
Anyone picking up your child must be on the student's emergency check-out list. You can update your emergency contact information through the Parent Portal or by contacting the Front Office.
Are there daycare centers that provide transportation to and from school?
Although we do not offer recommendations related to daycare providers, you may view a listing of daycare centers that provide before & after school childcare and transportation to Head Elementary.
