A few reminders of UHI procedures:
1. Student drop-off begins at 7:30; our morning assembly begins at 7:55 .Any student arriving after 7:55 must be signed in the front office. Students are tardy after 7:56.
2. Car riders are dismissed promptly at 2:50 each afternoon. Parents should remain in cars; duty teachers will dismiss students as cars pull to the front of the building to the loading/unloading zone. For safety, any remaining students will be brought back into the building at 3:15 and must be signed out by a guardian. We understand that there may be emergencies that delay pick-up occasionally, but parents are accountable for on-time pick-up. The School Resource Officer will be notified of habitual failure to arrive on-time. The Nettleton School District provides bus transportation to its students daily.
3. Students shall be prompt in arriving to school and to class. A child is documented as tardy when arriving 5 to 15 minutes after the beginning of the school day. A child is documented as ½ day absent when arriving more than 15 minutes late or leaving more than 15 minutes before the end of the school day. Excessive tardies and/or absences will result in parent notification and/or a conference and may be reported to the Prosecuting Attorney of Craighead County. Arkansas Department of Education guidelines requires that students be in attendance 6 hours a day excluding lunch and recess. Students who receive less than 3 hours of instructional time will be counted absent for the entire day.
Thank you for your continued support as we strive to maintain a safe, nurturing learning environment for our students.
