SUPERVISION ON SCHOOL GROUNDS
Supervision begins at 8:25 a.m. For the safety of all children, students are not allowed on school grounds prior to 8:25 a.m. Students in 5th grade enter the building through the recess doors at 8:30. Students in Grades 1-4 line up by homeroom teacher on the playground blacktop and enter through the recess doors at 8:35-8:40 am; kindergarten students line up outside the kindergarten door and enter at 8:35 am. Late arrivals (after 8:40 am) should use the main doors and check in at the office. In the event of inclement weather, students will assemble in the building at 8:25 am.
REPORTING OF ABSENCES
Report a student absence by calling school before 8:30 am: 630.861.4698. Afternoon absences should be reported by 12:15 pm. We will call home to verify an absence if a student is absent and we have not received a call. Always call the office to report an absence; teachers do not relay student absences to the office.
BICYCLE RIDING TO WALKER
Students in Grades 3-5 may ride their bikes to school only after they have completed the bicycle safety check that is held at the beginning of the school year.
SAFETY TO AND FROM SCHOOL
Students may only cross Walker Avenue at the manned crosswalk. Please do not park across the street and wave your child across the street.
Please review safety practices with your child, including the use of the crossing guard intersection, looking both ways, crossing at intersections, avoiding strangers, walking with friends/siblings, and utilizing the safest route to and from school.
CARPOOL — RULES & VISOR SIGNS
Carpool lines can seem intimidating. But don't worry. It's been well planned by involved parents, staff and the police department. For specific rules on what to do, CLICK HERE.
And, to help your child and the staff find you easily in the carpool line, you will receive a sign to hang on your car visor. Your classroom teacher will be sending these car visor signs home with your child to assist with lunch and end-of-day dismissal. CLICK HERE for instructions. If you need an additional sign for another car, you can obtain them through the office for $2.
