Dismissal Traffic at Tabour Court
Traffic during arrival and dismissal requires everyone to have patience as we move through the pick-up and drop-off zones around campus. We are also very appreciative of the ability to have Tabour Drive as one of our zones. It is important to remember it is a neighborhood and traffic laws must be followed when utilizing this area. While waiting in line to pick up your child(ren), please do not block any driveways and allow all homeowners access to their own driveway. Additionally, the Tabour Court cul-de-sac is NOT a waiting zone for drop-off and pick-up. You must wait for your child in the drop-off and pick-up zone or in the line until reaching the designated school zone.
It is important we be courteous and safe during these times, patience in understanding the traffic patterns and wait time during before and after-school is greatly appreciated. Remember, our children watch our example, so please always be safe and respectful. Our goal is to always keep all Huskies safe!
September is Attendance Awareness Month
Every minute counts when students are at school. This year we are working on improving attendance for all our students. Let’s help all our Huskies build a habit of good attendance early to set them up for success as they move into middle school and high school. Review our Attendance Pro Tips provided:
- Make sure students come to school well rested with a good night’s sleep.
- Allow plenty of time to get ready, get out the door, and transition to school.
- Have clothes and shoes ready and homework in the backpack the night before.
- Call the school for each day of illness or injury.
- Bring doctor notes to the school office the day after an appointment.
- Respond to school messages about your student’s attendance.
- Talk with the teacher and principal if your student has concerns about attending school.

We receive frequent requests for early release of students. We ask that you try to schedule appointments after school when possible and remember that if your child is being pulled out of school early, their absence is unexcused unless accompanied by a doctor’s note.
