St. Lawrence Elementary School




View our Handbook in English or Spanish


Arrival Times:  School begins promptly at 8:00 am, but we ask that all students try to be here before that so that they are ready to start learning as soon as the bell rings.  There is no adult supervision for any students arriving in the schoolyard before 7:45 am.  The cafeteria opens at 7:15 am ONLY for those students eating breakfast at school.


Dismissal Time:  Students are dismissed at 2:45 pm.  Please make arrangements to meet/pick-up your children by entering the parking lot off Warsaw Avenue and then exiting the lot through the Sturm Street gate.  There is no pickup permitted on Carson Ave.


Absences:  If your child is absent from school, you are required to call the school office (921-4996) before 8:30 am.  If there is no answer, press extension 35 and leave a message.  You must call the office each day the child is not in school.  Reason for absence notes should be sent to school on the first day your child returns to school.  If requested, homework will be available in the school office after school and may be sent home with a sibling.


Medication Policy: - ALL MEDICATIONS for students must be brought to the school office by an adult to be checked in.  No medicine may be brought to school by a student with the exception of inhalers and epi-pens.  No medicine may be brought on the school bus or kept in a book bag.  Many medications are regulated by Ohio state law and we must comply with these laws.  Thank you.


Early Dismissal: If you are picking your child up early for an appointment, please send a note with your child in the morning.  It is important that we know when and by whom your child is being picked up.  You must come to the school office to meet your child and sign him/her out.  Please try to make all appointments after school hours.


Transportation:  All transportation arrangements must be made with your child before coming to school.  If transportation changes must be made for your student please call the office and we will get a message to them by the end of the day.  Students will not be permitted to call home after school.
