The office is receiving many requests during the last hour of the day to deliver messages to students about after-school plans. Please make sure that your student is aware of after-school plans before they come to school. It is disruptive to classrooms to deliver messages to individual students during class time. Thank you!

Tardies and Early Dismissal Guidelines
New guidelines have been implemented for elementary Schools in the Olympia School District regarding tardies and early release of students at the end of the day.
- Arrivals are tardy between 8:30-9:00 AM (30 minute window).
- After 9:00 AM (9:01 on) the student is considered a Half Day Absent (AM).
- If a family takes a student out early from school (before 2:22 PM) it is a Half Day Absent (PM).
- If the student leaves within the last 1⁄2 hour of the school day (2:22 to 2:52 PM) it is recorded as an Early Departure.
**Unless it is medically urgent, we ask that parents not check out their students after 2:30 PM. At this point, please wait until the end of the day at 2:52 PM for the student to be released.**
