Quick Reference Guide

The School Day:
The school day is from 8:00 AM through 3:10 PM.  No student is permitted to enter the building before 7:55 AM unless dropped off by a bus, specifically attending a club, or supervised activity.
 
Absences:
Please call or email the house office to alert them if your child will be late or absent.  Students need a note signed by a parent/guardian explaining any absence.  Students are responsible for obtaining missed work when they are absent.
 
Lateness and Early Dismissal:
If a student arrives after homebase, they should report directly to their house office (homebase is from 8:07-8:14 AM).  Early dismissals require a written request from a parent/guardian and students will meet you outside the building.  Without a note, parents/guardians must enter the school building to sign students out.  A student will be released to an adult approved on the Emergency Contact Form.
 
The Weber ID Card:
A Weber ID Card is issued at the beginning of the school year.  Students are required to carry this card during the school day.  This ID card is also used as a bus pass, library card, and lunch card. 
 
Lunch:
One-half of the 45-minute lunch period is allocated for eating and one-half of the period may be spent in supervised recess. Visit Food Services on the District homepage under “District” for pricing information. The card operates as a debit card and a check can be made payable to the PW School District or go to MySchoolBucks.com to add money.  When the account is under $10, you will receive a reminder to replenish the account.
 
Forgotten Items/Lost and Found:
Parents may drop off forgotten items at the security vestibule.  Students are responsible to check for such items. Lost and found is in the cafeteria.
