No Early Arrivals Unless Scheduled


In the interest of safety, it is important that students not arrive at Elmwood before 8:20 a.m. each day. There is no outside supervision until those times.

Meetings for student activities and opportunities for individual help are sometimes scheduled to take place before the school day begins. Students who arrive before school for a scheduled purpose must sign in at the office and then proceed to their teacher's classroom.


Prompt Pick-Ups After School


All children must be picked up at 3 p.m., unless there is an early release day (see school-year calendar). If your child is not picked up, they will be sent to the office.

If your child is chronically not picked up from school on time, then a meeting will be arranged with the parent and administration.
