Spring Mill Elementary School Schedule
School begins at 8:20 a.m. All students should be in their classrooms before 8:30 a.m. Students who arrive after 8:30 a.m. will receive tardy slips. Punctuality is a highly valued life skill. Please ensure that your child is at school on time every day.
We encourage all our families to have students ride the school bus. However, to make it possible for a large number of car-riders to get to school on time, we open our doors at 8:10 a.m. and provide supervision for students until 8:20 a.m. when the school day begins. Do take advantage of the generosity of our staff members who start their day early to supervise your child in the morning. The tardy bell is meant to help if your child is late once in a while. Just as we adults need to be punctual at work, students need to be at school on time. The grown-ups are home are responsible for elementary students attending school on time. We appreciate your help in taking care of this. Remember that Spring Mill Road is typically busy around arrival and dismissal time and plan drop-off and pick-up accordingly.
We do not have staff available to supervise students before 8:10 a.m. DO NOT drop off your child before this time.
If you park in the parking lot, you MUST walk your child all the way up the front entrance.
If your child is tardy, you MUST come to the main office and sign in your child.
Please be respectful of our neighbors who live on 83rd Street and ALWAYSgive them room to enter and exit the street.
The front parking lot is ONLY for buses. No cars are permitted between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Students are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Parents of car-riders are requested to wait in their cars at the curb while their children are called by staff. Please do not leave your car unattended during dismissal. If you wish to park in the parking lot and walk in, you must wait in the cafeteria until the staff supervising car-riders invite you into the gym at 3:30 p.m. At that time you may walk into the gym and meet your child.
All car-riders MUST walk into the gym before they are dismissed to parents/other adults picking them up.
DO NOT pick up your child as he/she is walking to the gym at dismissal. We need to ensure that all students are accounted for.
ALWAYS park in the north parking lot.
At 8:25 a.m. students in grades K-5 begin eating breakfast in their classrooms. If you do not want your child to purchase a school breakfast, you must inform your child and your child’s teacher.
Students are encouraged to have a nutritious lunch which is provided daily at school. Four choices are always offered, including hot choices, a salad or fruit lunch, and a sandwich option with side items and milk. Free or reduced-cost lunch is offered to qualifying families. Students are allowed to carry lunch to school and may purchase milk separately. Students are served lunch in half-hour periods between 11:00 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. Breakfast is also offered daily.
