"Be On Time"

Be On Time

The LOES school day begins at 8:00 a.m. A valuable life skill we want students to learn is taking the responsibility of arriving at school every day on time. This skill can easily be accomplished and will transfer as a valuable asset for the future. One of the most important times of the school day is the morning. This is the time when important school news is announced, teachers define the plans for the day, and instructional goals are reviewed and set. The whole tone of a child’s school day is set in the first part of the day. Please help support your children in learning habits that will help them be successful at school and throughout life. Therefore, we are implementing the Be On Time (B.O.T.) Program.

SCHOOL SCHEDULE AND TARDY PROCEDURES:
 7:50 a.m. All students line up and walk to class with their teacher.

 8:00 a.m. Bell rings. All students should be in their classrooms or with their teachers proceeding to the class. Students arriving at this time are TARDY. Teachers will not accept students without a tardy pass from the office.

 3:25 p.m. Bell rings. Students are dismissed for the day. Early leave will count as an unexcused “absence” and will follow the same consequences as tardiness.

B.O.T. PROGRAM-CONSEQUENCES FOR TARDINESS:
 1st tardy Verbal warning.

 2nd tardy Letter sent to parent/guardian.

 3rd tardy Parent/student phone conference. 1 day of morning detention.

 6th tardy Parent/student phone conference. 2 days of morning       detention.

 7th+ tardy Attendance Committee Hearing/Truancy Report to Juvenile Case Manager

Excessive tardiness: Attendance is essential for student success. When students miss school, they miss educational opportunities. Teachers plan lessons weekly. They use assessment information to help them plan lessons that are targeted toward helping all children experience growth. When a student is absent, they miss a large chunk of learning. It is essential that students attend school every day they are healthy. The law is very specific on how schools are to respond to excessive absences or tardiness, also known as truancy. Since daily attendance is mandated by law, LOES is confident in knowing you will support our efforts in helping your child achieve their potential in school. If you are unsure about the policy, please feel free to ask. Once again, thank you for your support. We look forward to continuing our tradition of excellence at Lone Oak Elementary. Thank you, Beth Luhn, Principal Lone Oak Elementary
