The School Day & Beyond

Late Arrival & Absence Communication

Please notify the front office about any disruption in your child’s schedule, such as absence, late arrival, early dismissal, mid-day appointment, changes in transportation, or change in after care schedule by emailing by 8:30 AM. Please include the reason for absence, late arrival, or early dismissal. Accounting for every child’s whereabouts is of the utmost importance in keeping all of our students safe and accounted for. The front office will notify your child’s teacher(s), so there is no need to inform them separately.

School Arrival Policy

Rockwern classrooms open at 8:00 AM.

Teachers do not supervise classrooms and hallways prior to 8:00, and we ask that parents respect teachers’ morning planning time by not entering the classrooms or hallways before 8:00. If students arrive before 8:00, early care is available. Please see below for early care locations by grade.

Thank you for your cooperation.
