General Information

Attendance

ATTENDANCE

Children may not arrive before 7:30 A.M. as there is no supervision until that time. For the safety of your children please adhere to this arrival time. We expect children to arrive no later than 7:55 A.M. and be inside their classroom at 8:00 when the second bell rings.

According to a new state law, three unexcused absences or tardies constitute truancy. A pupil is tardy if he/she is not in the room when class begins 8:00 A.M.. Satisfactory explanation from parents is required in all cases of absences or tardies. Should either of these situations occur, please send a note of explanation to the teacher. We appreciate your assistance in assuring that your child arrives at school on time and that your child is in attendance for the entire day. Every time a child is late to school, he/she misses vital instructional time. If your child is habitually tardy, you will be contacted for a conference. Together we will find a solution to the problem and discuss consequences for continued tardiness. We also encourage parents not to pick up their children before dismissal time. Please try to make medical appointments after school. The continuity of the instructional program is very important and we want our children to receive the best educational opportunities available. We thank you in advance for your support.

If it is necessary for a child to leave the school because of medical of dental appointments , or for some other reason, a parent must come to the office and be personally identified. Children will not be released to other relatives or adults unless their names are on the emergency card. When completing your child's emergency card, please include the names of all adults who have permission to pick up your child. Please keep all emergency information current with our office. For the safety of your child, we cannot release a child by phone message. All children must be signed out through the office.

Breakfast and Lunch

The District has sent lunch applications to your residence over the summer. All students must submit a meal application, even if you might think you do not qualify. Breakfast is served in the classroom. Everyone eats for free from 8:00am to 8:15am. Students who do not meet the eligibility may purchase lunch at the regular prices. Children who were qualified for free lunch last year will continue to be eligible until a new application is completed.

Regular price for lunch is $2.75

Any lunch that is brought to school by the parent during intructional hours will not be sent to classrooms right away. The office will call the child to pick up the lunch from the office during recess or lunch time.

Comfort Kits

Dear Parents,

We are continuing a program here at Mayall Elementary, which will comfort your child in case of a major disaster. We are asking that every parent provide the following items for their child as soon as possible.

In a extra heavy duty Ziploc bag that holds 1 gallon, please put the following items. Please provide as many items as you can.

  1. Mylar silver blanket: (Protect from hot and cold temperatures) It is available at most stores in the Sporting Goods Department
  2. Energy Bar or Granola Bar
  3. Bottled water
  4. Note from the family to the student
  5. Family picture
  6. Playing cards
  7. Crayons, pencil and paper

Put the student's name and teacher's name on the front of the bag in permanent marker. The bag will be collected by the teacher and stored in a container in the classroom. If an emergency occurs the teacher and students will wheel the container out to the yard and give each student their personal bag. The bag will be returned at the end of the school year so it can be replenished for the new school year.

Thank you for all your help and support in this very important matter. Your child's safety is most important to everyone at Mayall Street Elementary School.
