MWES Front Office Reminders

ABSENT NOTE EMAIL REMINDER

When your child is absent, please send an email on the day your student returns to the following address:

MWESabsences@hcpss.org

Please bookmark this as a tab on your computer, and on the day your student returns from their absence, please send an email to the above address. NOTE: DO NOT send an email to your child's teacher. Often these emails are not forwarded to the front office for documentation. You may copy your child's teacher on the attendance email if you'd like.

We appreciate your help to ensure that our children are marked accurately on their attendance record. Thank you for taking the time to use our new email address created specifically for absences.

FRONT OFFICE HOURS

Our office hours are 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. Please understand that students will not be able to enter the building after 4:00pm to retrieve forgotten items. Our office staff will not be ringing student or parents into the building after 4:00 pm unless they are participating in a scheduled after-school activity. When you arrive to pick your student up from an after-school activity, please wait in the vestibule for the instructor to bring the students to you. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we tighten the security in the building. We would like to remind parents that dismissal is a very busy time of the day for the front office. Every once in a while, we realize that you may need to pick your child up early from school. We are asking parents that need to pick up their child (ren) early to do so before 3:00 pm. If you arrive after this time, you will be asked to wait outside until your child is dismissed with their class at 3:15. We will not be able to dismiss your child between 3:00-3:15. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us have a safe and orderly dismissal at the end of the day.

 

LATE ARRIVALS AND EARLY DISMISSALS

  • School opens at 8:30 am. If your student isn't in their classroom by the late bell (8:45 am), he/she is considered late. You must accompany your child into and out of the building each time your child has a late arrival or early dismissal. You must bring a photo ID.
  • If your student has an early dismissal, please make certain he/she is picked up by 3:00 pm to make certain you are out before our buses begin to arrive
  • Please provide a note each day your child has an after-school activity. This helps the teacher and your child remember the activity on a weekly basis.

 

"OOPS" TABLE

Did your child(ren) forget their lunch, backpack, instrument, homework, or anything else of importance? Have no worries! We now have an "OOPS TABLE" in our vestibule! Just stop in the vestibule, label the items with the provided pens and paper, and leave the rest to us. You don't need to ring the bell. We are trying to make your mornings easier and to minimize disruption to the front office. (We have over a dozen of forgotten items dropped off daily.) We will be monitoring the table throughout the day and will ensure that your child receives their forgotten item.
