Dropping Off and Picking Up Students
Students should not be dropped off before 8:55 a.m. There is no one to supervise the students until 8:55 AM. This time before school is a much-needed prep time for all those associated with the school. School begins at 9:10 a.m.
Kids Going Home
Please follow your prearranged going home plan every day. If you need to make any changes please call prior to noon. 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 child will follow their regular going home plan.
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 form 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. Students are not permitted to have any medication in their backpack, on their person, or at their desk.
Tangent School welcomes parents and community members who wish to volunteer. During this time that we are all battling the COVID 19 virus, we are putting all in-school volunteers on hold. In the future when we are able to welcome visitors back to our school. Prior to being approved to volunteer, those interested musts complete the Criminal History Verification, show proof of being fully vaccinated for the COVID 19 virus, and receive volunteer training with a staff member at the school. ALL visitors need to enter through the front doors and check-in at the office and obtain a badge.
