AT OAKDALE ELEMENTARY, CLASSROOM TIME IS RESPECTED. We as a staff have set many academic goals for the new school year. The following procedures will help ensure that disruptions to the learning process are kept to a minimum. Please be understanding and supportive of our attempts to provide your child with the very best learning experience possible. We want our students to be successful! We also want you to feel a part of the process and we welcome you here. In order to facilitate learning we are asking for your help in the following areas:
- Attendance and tardies will be enforced. The law states that all students must attend class regularly. Students who miss school regularly or are tardy on a regular basis for unexcused reasons are in violation of state law, district policy, and more importantly they miss valuable instructional time. Teachers have been instructed to contact you if attendance becomes a problem.
- If your student must leave during the school day for an appointment, they must return to school with a doctor note, in order for the absence to be excused.
- Please do not plan to check your students out of the office after 3:00. This is very disruptive to the end-of-the-day classroom and office procedures.
- Students should not call home during the school day unless it is an emergency. If a student calls home, they are encouraged leave a message for parents if no one picks up the phone. If you see a call from the school, please check your messages for information. The office cannot be the go-between for phone calls made in the classroom.
