    Don't be late
    Please make sure your child is at school between 7:45-7:50 a.m. each morning. Class begins at 8:00 a.m. sharp. Parents should remember when dropping their children off to allow enough time for backpacks and winter gear to be put away in lockers. Students still at the lockers at 8:00 a.m. (excluding breakfast students) will be marked tardy since they are not ready to learn. Students entering the building at 8:00 a.m. or after will need to be signed in at the office. 
     
    Morning Routine
    The right hand entrance is locked at 8:00 a.m. every morning. Students coming in late must report to the office before going to their classrooms. Teachers have already marked students absent at 8:00 a.m. If students arrive in the classroom after attendance it taken, the office will not know. Parents may receive an unnecessary phone call stating their child is not in school, when in fact they came in tardy. To avoid this problem, please make sure your child is at school between 7:45-7:50 a.m. each morning. Class begins at 8:00 a.m. sharp. Parents should remember when dropping their children off to allow enough time for backpacks and winter gear to be put away in lockers. Students still at the lockers at 8:00 a.m. (excluding breakfast students) will be marked tardy since they are not ready to learn. Students entering the building at 8:00 a.m. or after will need to be signed in at the office. 
     
    End of the Day Communication
    If alternative transportation arrangements are made for the end of the day, please notify the office or send a note with your child. For the safety of our students, we must be made aware of such plans. Your child will not be able to go home with anyone who is not on the emergency contact form unless prior notification has been given. 
     
    Please Report Student Attendance
    Please report your child's absence to the Star School office at (269) 948-4442 any time your child will not be in school. Students arriving late should also be reported to the office.
