Doors open for students at 9:00 AM. Students must be in their homerooms by 9:30 AM. The parent drop off door closes promptly at 9:25 AM. Even if cars are in line on the lot, the parent drop off door will close at 9:25 AM. This is to ensure the safety of our students and to make sure students arrive in their classrooms on time. Students that arrive in their homerooms after 9:30 AM will be marked tardy (late) to school. If your child is late to school, please bring your child to the front office to sign them in for the day. Dismissal begins at 4:00 PM.
If your child is absent, a note from the parent/guardian must be sent to school. When possible, please contact school the morning of the absence via phone or email. Reporting the absence in advance helps inform the teachers and enables them to prepare work for the student to complete (when applicable). Please send an email to: Winattendance@carrollk12.org to report your child's absence. Please include the student's name, grade, homeroom teacher and reason for the absence. Any absences without notes will be coded as unlawful.
All extended absences must be pre-approved in advance by an administrator. You can request approval by sending a letter to the Principal.
Please feel free to contact the office staff should you have any questions at (410) 751-3242.
