Arrival

Students are not to be dropped off prior to 7:30 a.m.

We will have staff on duty to supervise students beginning at 7:30 each morning. The doors will be unlocked at this time. Students arriving between 7:30 - 8:00 will either report to their grade-level specific area or to the cafeteria for breakfast. Students must be in the building by 7:55 to eat breakfast. The cafeteria will stop serving breakfast at 8:00.

 

Attendance/Tardy

The school day begins at 8:00 and ends at 2:35. Your child must be in attendance for at least one half the school day to be counted present.  This means that a child must arrive by 11:20 and stay the rest of the day to be officially present. A child who leaves before 11:20 and does not return to school will be counted absent for the day.

 

Tyro’s school day begins promptly at 8:00.  High school students take responsibility to arrive at school everyday on time; however, elementary students are much different.  They require parent/guardian assistance in getting up and preparing for their day.  One of the most valuable times of the school day is the morning. Morning announcements are made, teachers define their daily plans, and instructional goals are reviewed with questions answered.  The tone of your child’s school day is set in the first few minutes of class. Please help support your student in learning habits that will help them be successful in elementary school and throughout life.

 

If transporting your child through the car rider line becomes too hectic, feel free to contact the school to arrange bus transportation.  Students are NEVER late when they ride the school bus!

 

Yet, if your student arrives late, they will be given a "Tardy Pass" and sent to the classroom.  A parent/guardian must walk the child into the building.
