To Report A School Absence
Call 850-6720

You must call 850-6720 when your child is ill or will not be in school for any other reason. We worry when your child has not arrived at school. Our health aide will record the absence. When your child returns to school after any absence, it is necessary that a note be sent to the teacher explaining why the child was absent. Requests for homework can be called in to the Health Room.Notice this is a change.

Safety Policy-
We are all concerned with the safety of our children. At Douglas Road we have had a safety policy in effect for several years. Every year we revisit the policy and make necessary changes. We welcome your comments about our policy, which is described below.

School begins at 8:20 am and dismissal is at 3:20 p.m.The front door will be open each day, but the rest of the doors will be locked from the outside at 9:00. Students and staff are not locked in as the doors can be opened from within.

Every adult who enters the school must sign in at the office and obtain a name badge. That will help us be aware of who is in the building. Our staff will expect all visitors to have a name badge.

We ask that you not pick up students before 3:20 p.m. We know that sometimes appointments must be made during the day. When that is the case, the parent or guardians must report to the office and someone will call your child to the office to meet you. Children must remain in their rooms until the adult signs in at the office. Many times in the past children have left their rooms only to wait for someone in the office for twenty minutes or more. That is an additional loss of class time.

If a parent is dropping off a lunch, musical instrument, etc., the item should be brought to the office and the student will be called down to retrieve it. Parents delivering items directly to the room is very disruptive to class time.

Parents/guardians may not change dismissal plans by telephone. If you wish to change instructions for your child's dismissal you must provide us with a signed request, or come into our office in person. Requests by phone may compromise the safety of the student since we have no way of seeing the person on the other end of the telephone line. Also, even if we know you, the number of requests we receive in a day put undue stress and responsibility on the shoulders of our office personnel. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however, we must consider the security of our students when relaying messages.

We appreciate your support of these policies. You are always welcome in our school, and we need your help.We want your children in a safe and happy learning environment. We believe our policies foster a safe setting and more learning. If you have any questions, please stop in the office or call me at 850-6701.
