 Federal Report Cards for Jollyville

Communication

* Transportation Change – Requests need to be communicated to the office no later than 2:30 each day.  If you want your child to dismiss in a way different from their typical way after school, it must be made through the office.  If the notification happens after 2:30, then students will be expected to dismiss the same as any other day.

* Dismissal – In order for a student to be called from class to dismiss early, the trusted adult must be in the office no later than 2:40 p.m.  If the trusted adult arrives after 2:40, then they will have to wait at the location where their student normally dismisses.  This policy will begin immediately, and no exceptions will be made without Administrator approval. I know that we share a common goal for students to dismiss safely from school each day.  We appreciate your support.  

Campus Communication – All major campus events will be posted on the marquee in the front of the school.  Also, the calendar on the campus website is kept up to date as events are added, changed, or canceled.  Finally, teachers will communicate important dates to parents of the students in their class.  It is our goal to provide numerous opportunities for families to be involved.  We thank you for supporting all of our efforts at Jollyville Elementary.
