Early Childhood Literacy Program

The Early Childhood Literacy program is designed to facilitate the language and auditory needs of kindergarten and first grade students. The children are screened to determine their strengths and needs.

Early Release of Students

Children are not to be excused to leave the school during school hours unless a PARENT OR AUTHORIZED PERSON WHO IS 18 YEARS OLD WITH A PHOTO I.D. comes to the office and signs them out. Teachers will be notified to send the child to the office with their things. If a parent goes to the classroom, they will be redirected back to the office to follow proper procedure. Dismissal for outside school activities, except for illness, is not acceptable. A child who is ill and needs to go home must check out in the office before leaving. A child leaving school without permission should be brought to the attention of the office immediately.


Beginning August 18, 2010, parents will not be able to sign out their children to leave if it is 3:30 p.m. or later. The students will need to wait until the dismissal bell at 3:45 p.m. The last few minutes of the day teachers are passing out important information, homework, etc. and removing students during this time is very disruptive. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.


School is occasionally closed early due to storms, heating problems, water issues, etc. In such an event, a release is made by the news media. Arrangements must be made in advance s that your child will know where to go when released early.
