VISITING THE BUILDING:  

When visiting the building during the day, please remember to take advantage of the parking spots and avoid parking near sidewalk.  Please check in at the office to receive a visitor’s badge.  We ask that you drop off supplies or items in the office you wish to be dropped off with your child’s teacher or your child.

ATTENDANCE:

If your child is sick or unable to attend school, please call the office by 9 a.m. to let us know.  Please send a doctor’s note when seeing a physician.  We appreciate your committed efforts to helping ensure that communication remains priority.

SCHOOL DISMISSAL:

If your child will be going someplace different after school on a particular day, please send a note to school.  Students must have a note!  If a situation comes up during the day that requires you to change your child’s transportation arrangements, please call as soon as you can.  If at all possible, please call before 2:00 pm.

BUS STOPS:

There will be several bus stops throughout town.  They are as follows: the intersections of Miller & New Rand, Main & Spring, Ray & Bridge, Daisy & Jefferson, Union & Daisy, Ray & Pine, and Mulberry & James.

TextCaster:

If you would like to sign up for alerts, visit our website at sweetsprings.k12.mo.us.  To sign up look under the Quick Links tab.  Make sure to keep your phone numbers up to date.

PARENT PORTAL:

I encourage every parent in the district to sign up for this service.  It is a great communication tool to use when you have questions about current grades, homework, attendance history, or your child’s lunch account balance.  If you signed up for parent portal last year, you WILL need to fill out the parent portal papers again.  There is an information sheet being sent home with information on accessing Parent Portal.
