Character Counts at Mason!
Parent drop off time begins at 8:00 AM and students must be in class no later than 8:30 a.m.
If your student does not arrive in parent drop off in time to get to class before the tardy bell rings at 8:30 a.m., you are required to walk your child into school and sign him/her in.
Breakfast is not served after 8:25 a.m.
If your student arrives at school after this time, please make sure he/she has already had breakfast.
*Student checkouts or transportation changes are not allowed after 2:30 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday AND after 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Changes this late in the school day become confusing and may result in students not being placed appropriately. Please be sensitive to this issue and arrange any changes in transportation prior to 2:30 p.m.
Please address any questions to Administration.
Does your child do chores?
As the school year starts we begin to think about the new responsibilities our children will have. Chores around the household are some of the best ways to teach our Character Counts traits. View a list of age-appropriate chores. Start helping your children to be responsible by helping them select an appropriate chore to do around your house!
Academically Challenging Curriculum to Enhance Learning (ACCEL) options are available. Parents who wish to consider course or grade level acceleration should review eligibility criteria and process referenced in the District Student Progression Plan and Parent Resource Guide.
