Attendance and Tardy Notice
Regular school attendance is important to children, just as a job is important to an adult. Children who attend regularly, do assignments and keep up with school activities and projects are more apt to succeed at school.
Absences because of illness, medical or dental appointments are unavoidable, but we hope parents will be very thoughtful in deciding when children will be absent for any other reason.
Being on time for school is also important, to your child. Late-arriving children miss instructional time for students and teachers. As children accept responsibility for arriving at school on time, they are developing habits that will be useful all their lives; you will be notified if your child is excessively late.
Students line up at 7:30 am
Classroom Instruction begins at 7:45 am
Breakfast in class is at 7:35 am
School Dismissal is at 2:45 pm
Uniform shirts are required at North Star Elementary. The school shirt is red, royal blue or white. A school logo is not required. However, for safety purposes, we do highly recommend students wear the school logo. Only jeans, joggers, dark-colored pants, or khaki shorts may be worn. Clothing must be of appropriate size and length. No torn jeans or shorts are allowed. Uniforms must be worn beginning on the first day of school. We· know that some parents go to work before their child leaves for school, but parents will be notified if the student is out of the dress code.
Parking Lot Safety
Parents will drop students at the designated door for the grade level. Please assist us by having your children ready (shoes tied, hair done, backpacks ready, etc ... ), so that the drop-off time does not hold back the lines. For dismissal, students will be escorted outside and to the vehicles by staff members. No Parking is permitted in the drop-off zones. Please park in the proper parking spots if you plan on walking the students to the door.
