From now on, the new jean day policy will be as follows:

Students will bring money ON FRIDAY to wear jeans on that day. A staff member will be waiting at the drop-off area in the morning to collect the dollar. If your child does not have a dollar but is wearing jeans you will have to take them home to change into school policy appropriate attire and drop them off, in which case they will be considered tardy. PLEASE pay attention to this new rule from now on.

WELCOME BACK TO OUR SCHOOL! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Dear SST Sugar Land Learning Community,
We want to welcome you back to our school system.

Dear parents/guardians,

Please pay close attention to the following important reminders. We wish you a happy new year!


BREAKFAST & LUNCH

Nutritious meals are available daily for a price of $1.75 for breakfast, $3.00 for lunch, and $0.50 for a la carte milk. Each student is provided a lunch account on to which money may be deposited. Households are encouraged to pay towards their child’s lunch balance in SchoolCafé. To learn more about SchoolCafé, please visit their website: www.schoolcafe.com. To register for an account, please use this link: https://www.schoolcafe.com/register.

You will find this campus name under the RIVERWALK SST DISCOVERY district. If you need help, please call the school and ask to speak with the Lunch Clerk.

Should a student’s meal account balance fall below $0, he /she will be allowed to charge up to -$10.00. Once the negative meal account balance limit is reached, the student will receive an alternate meal. Alternate meals consist of cereal, fruit, and milk for breakfast; and for lunch, a sandwich, vegetable, and milk. If a student is later approved for free meals, he/she will begin receiving meals immediately. However, the household is still responsible for paying the negative account balance.

If you are not able to pay for breakfast & lunch online at School Cafe, you may pay at the front office.

You can come to have lunch with your child ONCE a month at most. The front office will provide you with a badge.


DRESS CODE

As authorized by state law and the school’s charter, students are required to wear uniforms to school.
Please make sure students are NOT WEARING JEANS or HOODIES to school. Only jackets with zippers are allowed so that the uniform shirt is VISIBLE AT ALL TIMES.

If a student arrives at school out of uniform, the student’s parent(s) will be called to bring a change of clothes. The student will not be allowed to attend class until he or she is appropriately dressed. Any class time missed will be counted as an unexcused absence. The school reserves the right to determine and restrict unbecoming styles. Violations of the school’s uniform policy and grooming standards will result in incremental disciplinary action.

Please refer to page 13-14 of the handbook attached at the bottom of the newsletter.


DISMISSAL


Dismissal is from 3:15 p.m. - 3:35 p.m during which parents must wait in the pick-up line.
When picking up your child, come from the SECOND ENTRANCE (further down on Clodine).

If it is after 3:35, parents MUST walk into the front office and pick up their student.

NO students will be released from the front office between 3:00 - 3:35 P.M.

At 3:35 p.m., students will be sent to the front office by the teacher. You are welcome to come in and wait for them before 3:35, but you will need to wait until they are sent to the front.

If you forget your Car Tag, you will need to pick your child up from the front office at 3:35.

If you pick up your child anytime AFTER 3:50 p.m, it will be considered A LATE PICKUP and you will have to come in and pay a fee of $10 each time you pick up your child late. Please refer to page number 12 of the handbook for rules about late pick-up. *Handbook attached at the bottom of the newsletter.*

If you LOSE your car tag, you can PAY $2 for a new one in the front office.

Please refer to page 12 of the student handbook attached at the bottom of this newsletter for any additional questions about Dismissal.


ATTENDANCE POLICY

When a student must be absent from school, parents are asked to call the school each day the student will be absent. Upon returning to school, it is mandatory that the student bring a note from a parent explaining the absence. The Principal or designated school administrator will have final approval as to if the absence will be excused. Notes must be received within three days of the absence or the absence will be unexcused

Tardiness interrupts instructional time. Students should be inside the classroom by the school’s announced start time. If a student is more than 20 minutes late to any class, he/she will be counted absent for the period. A student arriving after this time must first report to the front office and obtain a tardy slip.

To receive credit in a class, a student must attend at least 90% of the days the class is offered. These include both excused and unexcused absences.

A student who attends for at least 75 percent, but fewer than 90% of the days the class may be referred to a campus Attendance Review Committee to determine whether there are extenuating circumstances for the absences and how the student can regain credit.

If a student attends fewer than 75% of class days, they will NOT receive credit in a class. No exceptions.

Please refer to page 9-11 of the student handbook attached at the bottom of this newsletter for any additional questions about attendance.


ADDITIONAL REMINDERS


NO parents allowed past front office unless they have a scheduled appointment (scheduled AT LEAST one day in advance)
No parents will be allowed in our cafeteria or hallway during instruction time (7:15 AM-3:30 PM) unless parents have scheduled a meeting with teachers or are joining to attend a school event.
NO Parent allowed past the front office without a BADGE

Chaperone Rules for Field Trips

You have to provide your own transportation.
Kids who are NOT students cannot be present on the field trip
You MUST fill out a Parent Volunteer form and be on the approved Parent Volunteer List.


DROP OFF

In order to be ON TIME, parents must DROP OFF students between 7:15 - 7:42 a.m.

Parents must DROP OFF students in the drop off line at the OTHER END of the school.

At 7:42 a.m. the back doors will be closed. If you are dropping off your child past 7:42 it is considered LATE. You must park in the visitor parking lot, bring your child inside, and sign them in. The student will receive a tardy slip and be escorted to class.
