Hours & Attendance


Lakewood School Hours: 7:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. 

Students Allowed in Building: 7:15 AM

Breakfast Begins: 7:25 AM

If your child is going to be absent or tardy for any reason, please contact the school as soon as possible at 336-8870, ext. 2622 so that we are aware your child is safe.  If the office does not hear from you, your child’s absence will be considered unexcused. Students arriving any time after 7:45 a.m. are considered tardy.

If there will be a change to your child’s after-school transportation on any given day, you must send a note to your child’s teacher and notify the school office at 336-8870, ext 2590.  For example, if your child normally rides a bus each day and you would like to pick them up on a certain day, you would send a note to the teacher stating this information and you would call the office to make the School's Administrative Assistant aware of this, as well.  If someone else, other than a parent, will be picking up your child it is very important to remember that we must have the full name of the person that will be picking up your student and what their relationship is to the student.  You should make the person who will be picking up your student aware that they will be required to present picture identification to the School's Administrative Assistant.  She must be able to verify their identity prior to releasing your student into their custody.  They will also be required to sign the student out so that we have a record documenting the name of the person who picked up your child.  This is both for the safety of your child and our staff.

Consistent attendance is an integral part of your child's education. Student absences are tabulated on a regular basis to track any students who may be having issues with truancy. We ask that you try to maintain your student's daily attendance by scheduling appointments, etc., during after school hours whenever possible. If possible, try to plan family trips during scheduled school breaks so as to avoid lengthy absences during the school year.
