Friendly Reminders

TRANSPORTATION CHANGES: We ask that you make all transportation changes by 2 p.m. either by sending a note with your student or by calling the front office (NO EMAILS OR FAXES). Please include STUDENT NAME, TEACHER, DATE, PARENT SIGNATURE and location of where your child will be picked up to ensure that all requests are processed properly and on time. The front office does transportation changes only on the day of the change. If a permanent change is needed, please let office know.

ABSENCES: Absence notes must include student name (first and last name), date, and reason for absence or provide a doctor's note.

STUDENT ITEM DROP OFF: All items needing to be dropped off for a student during school hours must be placed on the shelves in the front entrance. Please label with the child's name and teacher. Delivery tickets are on the desk in the vestibule and should be taped on the item. If the items are money, glasses, or electronic devices, please let the office know immediately.

NO VISITORS DURING INSTRUCTIONAL TIME IN THE CLASSROOMS unless it is an LISD approved class party or special event, or unless these visitors are approved LISD volunteers who are volunteering/helping in the classroom.

SIGN IN/OUT: Please let front office know when you are checking in/out a student. Fill out the student sign in/out form on the blue pad at the front window to help us track our students.

SECURITY: The security of our children is very important to us. In order for VISITORS and VOLUNTEERS to enter the building, you must show ID or have ID on file to get a BADGE printed at the front office.

At 7:45 a.m., the front doors will lock and stay locked during school hours. Students of SRE may go through the second entrance between 7:20 a.m. – 7:45 a.m., but visitors and volunteers MUST SIGN IN and get a BADGE AT ALL TIMES. If a student comes in after 7:45 a.m., they will need to get a tardy in the front office. If student comes in after 8:45 a.m., they are considered ABSENT. Please also remember to check out at the front office. This is simply handing your badge back to the receptionist. Thank you for understanding and keeping our children safe!

IF YOUR STUDENT FORGOT SOMETHING AND NEEDS TO GET BACK IN BUILDING AFTER DISMISSAL, the teacher has to accommodate the child to get back to the classroom. All hallway doors are locked after dismissal for the safety of our staff.

VOLUNTEERS: Volunteer Registration | Volunteers must be approved to work at SRE with our children. Renewal is mandatory each year. Volunteers will be signed in/out at the front office. This will ensure the safety of our wonderful Volunteers in the building. We appreciate everything you do!!

DRESS CODE GUIDELINES Please remember to follow LISD dress code guidelines.

PARENT / STUDENT HANDBOOK: “The foundational literacy and mathematics instruction in the elementary grades is essential to success in middle school, high school and beyond. Did you know that when children are absent as few as one day every two weeks, the cumulative time missed in the classroom can accumulate to two full weeks in the school year lost to instruction? As we continue these conversations about attendance, thanks for all you do already to ensure your students get to school every day, and on time.

BIRTHDAYS: We are happy to welcome your child's birthday treats (single-serve treats please) if your child's teacher has given her consent. This consent from the teacher is very important since your child's classroom may have a serious allergy issues. If approved, please bring the treats to the front office on the agreed-upon day, and the teacher will distribute them to the students. To preserve instructional time, we can't accommodate birthday balloons, favor bags/candy or visitors to the classroom during this time. Thank you in advance for your understanding. BALLOONS and FLOWERS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT SRE FOR THE SAFETY OF ANY CHILDREN WITH ALLERGIES.
