Absentees, Student Sign-In/Sign-Out Procedures

Please call the school office if your child is absent or late. State Law requires contact to be made within 2 hours of the start of the school day of students who are absent. A 24-hour voicemail is available to receive absence or tardy calls. Please use this voicemail for all calls after 4:30 p.m. and before 8:30 a.m. You may email fes_attendance@plsd.us or call 614-834-7609. Thank you for helping us comply with the state requirements.

  • If your child is going to be late, please call the school office. When you do bring your child to school, please come to the office and sign your child in. A medical excuse is required to excuse a student’s absence due to a doctor, orthodontist, dentist, etc appointment.
  • If you need to pick up your child early, please send a note or email to your child’s teacher, or email our attendance secretary at fes_attendance@plsd.us
  • It is important to make arrangements with your child before school each morning so they will know what to do at dismissal. In emergencies, please contact the school office and we will inform your child of any changes in arrangements.

We ask your patience and understanding in this matter. We have a tremendous responsibility to provide a safe and secure environment for all your children. Thank you for your assistance.

School Arrival and Dismissal

We would like to thank everyone in advance for your cooperation in following our procedures for arrival and dismissal of students. With an enrollment of almost 500 students, being accountable for safety, as well as the academic program, takes much effort from the school, parents and students. Together we can make it work.

Morning Arrival

This year, in all of our elementary buildings, the buses will be unloading at 9:05 a.m. While we encourage parents to send children to school on the bus, if you are dropping of your child in the morning, you may begin drop off around back as early as 8:50pm. We believe this provides plenty of time for our children to get to their classrooms by the tardy bell at 9:15pm. If you’re student arrives after the 9:15am tardy bell, an adult must sign them in tardy in the office. Please do not drop a student off at the front door.

Afternoon Dismissal

Each day as school ends, we dismiss the same almost 500 students. We have buses, cars and daycare vans picking up children. Please follow the drop off guidelines below.
