Attendance Matters

Attendance Matters!  If your student is absent due to illness, an appointment, vacation, or other, parents are to leave a message on the Attendance Line at 763-792-5307 or email by 9:15 am each day your student is absent.  Messages left without a valid reason for the absence will result in the student being marked unexcused.

Car drop off in the morning begins at 8:55 am.  If your student is dropped off after 9:13 am please come to the front office to sign in your student. Students should be in their classroom when class begins at 9:15 am (tardy bell). 

If you need to pick up your student early for an appointment, please send a note with your student for the teacher.  This step minimizes interruptions to the classrooms.  Thank you.  

Student Drop off and Pick Up map and guidelines:

The only student drop-off and pick-up location is on the west side of our building, which is reached via the back driveway coming in behind Centennial Elementary School off Lever Street (near the baseball fields).  There should be no student drop-off nor pick-up in the main staff parking lot of Centennial Elementary School except for Kids Club families, school buses and authorized vehicles.  

Thank you for your cooperation.

Kathy Kaiser, Principal
