Supervision of students at Rio Seco begins at 8:15 A.M. Students should not arrive at school prior to 8:15 A.M. To ensure the safety of all children, students should not be on the school grounds before that time. If you leave for work early, please make necessary arrangements to have your children taken care of until supervision begins at 8:15 A.M. Once they arrive, students may not leave campus without permission.
Please leave your house in enough time for your child to be seated in class when the 8:30 A.M. bell rings. It is important that all students be on time. Punctuality is a life skill that carries over into the work force. In addition, a loss of instructional time can be avoided when students are on time. If your child is not in class or with the teacher at 8:30 A.M., he/she will be marked tardy. Three tardies are the equivalent of one absence. Junior High students that are truant will make up lost academic time during lunch detention.
There is NO SUPERVISION for students and students and parents must wait behind the school campus gates until the bell rings at 8:15 A.M. At that time, students are to walk to their designated playground area and wait for their teacher to pick the class up at 8:25 A.M.
Please make arrangements for dismissal time. After children are dismissed, they are to go to the front of the school to meet their ride or begin walking home. Under no circumstances are students allowed on school equipment or on playgrounds after school, even with parent supervision. Primary students will not be permitted to wait for their older siblings to be dismissed from school. Please make the arrangements necessary to enable your child to leave campus at their dismissal time each day. After school supervision is not provided. Project SAFE is available for a fee and will provide supervision for your child if necessary until transportation can be provided at dismissal time.
If you need to pick your child up before school is dismissed, please come to the office and sign him/her out. Your child will then be called to the office to leave school. A student may only be released to adults listed on the emergency card unless a special note is provided to the school office.
