My child forgot their: homework, lunch, books, etc... How can I get it to them?

You are more than welcome to drop off their forgotten item at the front office. Mrs. Calarco and Mrs. Gillmer will make every effort to ensure that our children receive any missing items. However, planning and preparation prior to leaving for school should be encouraged.

My child left their book, homework page, or another item at school. Can I come after school hours to pick it up?

We strongly discourage children from returning to classrooms after dismissal. All classrooms have end of day procedures aimed at fostering a sense of personal responsibility. Students are expected to pack up all necessary items before leaving the classroom.

My child is sick and I want to collect his/her homework.

Please contact the teacher via email to request homework to be sent home with a sibling or to be picked up by a parent in the office after school from 3:00 -4:00. The office closes at 4:00 PM.

What if I want to pick my child up rather than taking the bus home?

If you are going to pick your child up before the bus takes your child home, please send a note with your child in the morning. You may also call ahead of time. The office can better meet your needs if they have enough time to relay that information to the proper staff members. Please avoid showing up at dismissal with this request. Classes get ready for dismissal procedures at approximately 2:45 PM.

My child is not taking the bus. How early may I drop them off at school?

You can drop off your child from 8:20 until 8:29 AM at the student drop-off location (Line Street side) of the school. Children coming to school after 8:30 AM are considered late and parents need to come into the front office to sign them in and fill out a tardy note.

Who do I call if I have a problem with the bus?

If you have questions or concerns regarding bus schedules, you may call the North Penn School District Transportation Office at 215-853-1139 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on weekdays only. Questions and requests will be processed according to "priority" - with concerns regarding student safety receiving immediate attention.

My child has a food allergy. Who should I talk to about this?

If your son/daughter has a food allergy, you should alert the school nurse as well as the child's teacher as soon as possible. The school nurse will advise you as to further steps you need to take. Your child's class will be informed that there is a food allergy that they need to be made aware of, so as to not send any food to school which contains that substance.
