    -School begins each morning at 7:50 a.m.  If your child is tardy, a parent must come inside and sign them in at the front office. The security doors will not allow late/tardy students to come down the hallway. Three tardies in a nine-week period will result in a detention for the student.

    -If your child eats breakfast at school, they must go DIRECTLY into the cafeteria from the bus/car. Breakfast is served from 7:30 a.m.-7:50 a.m. unless there is a late bus.

    -If your child is going home a different way than normal, you must send a note or call the office letting us know how your child will get home BEFORE 12:00 noon. If we do not have proper notification, we will send them home by the means that they would normally take.

    -PLEASE DISCOURAGE your child to bring unnecessary things to school such as toys, excess money, etc. Any money sent to school for the cafeteria, field trips, etc., should be placed in a sealed envelope with your child’s name and an explanation on the outside.

    -If a child is absent from school, the school must receive an excuse from a doctor or a written excuse from a parent in order for the absence to be excused. Refer to the school handbook or district webpage for any questions you may have about attendance.

    -Please refer to the Hayes Cooper Center Handbook and/or website for questions concerning uniforms and other information. Dress code regulations must be met each school day. Dress code violations require that parents be called and students must change to return to school.
