Tardies and Early Dismissals

New guidelines have been implemented for the Elementary Schools in the Olympia School District regarding tardies and early release of students are the end of the day.  Students will be marked:

  • Tardy - 9:00 to 9:30 (30 minute window)
  • After 9:30 (9:31 on) the student is considered a Half Day Absent (AM)
  • If a family takes a student out early from school (before 2:52) it is a Half Day Absent (PM)
  • If the child(ren) leave within the least 1/2 hour of the school day (2:52 to 3:22) it is recorded as an Early Departure.

Unless it is medically urgent, we ask that parents not check out their students after 3:00pm.  At this point, please wait until the end of the day at 3:22pm for the student to be released.

Thank You!
