General School Information


Student Absence:
Please notify the school every day your child will be absent. You can call the school voice mail system and leave a message in the mailbox.  You can also email our school secretary, Judi Muro at JMuro@darienps.org with your absence.

Call 655-9666, press 4

After classroom attendance has been taken and sent to the office, a check will be made against the absences phoned in to the school. In any case of absence where there has been no notification by the parent, contact will be made with the home to verify the absence.

PARENT PICKUP:
Please provide your child's teacher with a note requesting early dismissal. 

LATE ARRIVAL:
Students arriving late to school should report to the school office.

EXTENDED VACATIONS:
Extended vacations beyond the regularly scheduled school vacations are strongly discouraged. Skill development is a day-to-day process. Interruptions to your child's normal school calendar may be harmful to the learning process. It is difficult for teachers to prepare homework before, during and after an extended vacation. In order to discourage extended vacations, it has become a district wide practice for teachers not to be required to provide extra homework.

BUS TRANSPORTATION:
Contingent on space and acceptable behavior, parents may request that their children ride another bus to a friend's house or for other necessary purposes. All requests must be in writing and submitted with the understanding that the administration reserves the right to grant bus changes. Long-term change requests must be discussed with the principal.

PICKING UP AND PARKING:
The bus loop is reserved for buses only. Cars are not allowed in the bus loop. At arrival and dismissal times, students must be picked up and dropped off at the designated area only.

BICYCLE RIDERS:
As of October 1, 1993, Connecticut State Law requires ALL BICYCLE RIDERS UNDER THE AGE OF 14 TO WEAR HELMETS. Students are to park and LOCK their bicycles in racks located on the school grounds. Bicycles are to be walked to and from the bike rack. Bicycle riders should stay in single file on the right hand side of the road using hand signals and obeying traffic lights and road signs. On heavily traveled roads, bicycle riders use sidewalks, granting the right of way to pedestrians, except in downtown Darien where bicycles are not allowed on sidewalks. It is strongly urged that children not ride double on bicycles. Also, a child is not to borrow another bicycle without permission from the owner. It is recommended that all bicycles be registered with the Darien Police Department.
