Dropping Off and Picking Up Students
Students should not be dropped off before 7:40 AM. There is no one to supervise the students until 7:40 AM. This time before school is a much-needed prep-time for all those associated with the school. School begins at 7:50 AM.
Kids Going Home
Please talk to your child in the mornings before they leave for school and give them directions of where they are to be after school that day. The office gets calls frequently that could/should have been taken care of at home. Please note that unless your student brings a note to the office or to his/her teacher, or the office receives a phone call, your student/s will ride the bus home if that is what he/she normally does. Students are required to ride the bus unless prior arrangements or notification has been made. Kindergarten Students… If a guardian or designated adult is not at the bus stop to pick up your child, he or she will be returned to school for you to pick up.
Students receiving ANY kind of medication, over-the-counter or prescription, must have a Medical Release Form filled out and on file in the office. If your child is taking a prescription, the bottle must come to the office by an adult – NOT ON THE BUS – and be marked EXACTLY how it is to be dispensed (frequency and time of day). All non-prescriptions INCLUDING cough drops, Tylenol, etc. must be accompanied by a medical release and dispensed from the office.
Tangent School welcomes parents and community members who wish to volunteer. However, ALL visitors need to enter through the front doors and check in at the office and obtain a badge. Also, volunteers must complete Criminal History Verification form prior to volunteering and receive volunteer training with Ms. Greenfield.
