Tardy/Early Dismissal Policy


    Students are considered tardy if they are not in their classrooms by 8:15 a.m. (This includes students being carpooled.) Students who are dropped off in carpool after 8:15 am must have a parent come into the office sign them in for the day. 

    All tardies are “unexcused” unless the student had a doctor/dentist appointment that morning or arrive on a late bus. Please provide a copy of the appointment to the secretary at the time of arrival to school.

    Consistent tardiness will be referred to the School Counselor and Administrative team.

    **Students whose home school is not Huntingtowne Farms Elementary and who do not comply with attendance, tardy, and dismissal expectations could be in violation of their transfer and could be sent back to their home school.



    There will be no early dismissals after 2:30 p.m. as this disrupts classroom instruction at the end of the day. 

    Adults asking for a child must show a valid photo ID. Students are only dismissed through the front office. Stop in the office upon your arrival.

    If you must pick your child up early for a doctor or dentist appointment, please provide a copy of the visit to the office the next day. 

    Please ask for early dismissal only when absolutely necessary.
