Petsworth Visitors & Guests
All visitors must sign in at the main office using the visitor kiosk. A badge will be printed and must be worn at all times while on school property. Our office secretary will provide any guidance needed.
Student Absence, Tardy, & Pick up
If your child misses school, please send a note with your child explaining the absence. After 3 undocumented absences, a letter will be sent home from the school. Please read the division's attendance policy here - page 11.

If your child is late to school, they must be signed in under "Student Tardy" using the visitor kiosk in the office. A tardy pass will be printed for them to take to their teacher.  Students may go to class at 8:45 a.m. The school day begins/tardy bell rings at 9:00 a.m. 

If your child needs to be picked up from school, please send a note with him/her that morning. The teacher will forward the note to the office. If you find out that you will need to pick up your child at the last minute, please call the office before 3:00 p.m. You will need to sign your child out using the visitor kiosk in the front office.

Please communicate any health status changes or injuries so that accommodations can be made if necessary. Please inform our nurse, Mrs. Smith, of any change in medication or allergy status.
