Your child's presence is the first step to success!



Admission Procedures

There is no provision for AM childcare, so please do not have students come to school too early.  Finletter will not be responsible for student misconduct that occurs before school therefore, parents are asked to please ensure that students do not arrive at school prior to 8:15 AM unless they are in grades 4-8 and are going to the breakfast program between 8:00-8:15 AM.

Teachers in Grades K-2 have a special obligation to ensure that a parent, guardian, sibling, or designated adult meets each child and signs him or her out.  If a student is not picked up, the teacher will escort him or her to the Main School House office and hand the student and the sign-out sheet over to the designated adult who will monitor students until all students are picked up. Should a child be picked-up after dismissal time for more than two times, a meeting with the principal will be setup to determine how this problem can be resolved.
