Arrival / Lateness Procedures
Students can enter through the Stillwell Ave. schoolyard entrance, starting at 7:30am. Parents will leave their child at the door. Students will be greeted by a Staff Member and will proceed directly downstairs to the cafeteria and sit at their designated tables where they are supervised by additional TAOTS staff members. Teachers will pick their students up from the cafeteria at 8:00am to proceed to their classrooms.
ALL DOORS WILL BE CLOSED AT 8:00 AM SHARP!! YOUR CHILD WILL BE MARKED LATE IF HE/SHE ARRIVES AFTER 8:00 AM. ALL LATE CHILDREN MUST ENTER THROUGH THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO OBTAIN A LATE PASS.
Children arriving after 8:20 am are considered late. You must escort your child in through the main entrance to receive a late pass given by one of the safety agents. A parent/guardian must then escort their child to the Main Office and hand the late pass to a Main Office Staff Member. Lateness will be recorded on ATS and will appear on your child’s report card. A child who arrives late to school should never be dropped off outside the building or left unattended.
If you have a change to your child’s Dismissal Plan , it is very important to contact your child’s teachers either by email before 12pm or write a note and send it in your child’s HW Folder.
