Bob Sikes Elementary does not have voice mail capability directly to the teacher's class from outside calls. To contact teachers, Office Staff must transfer you to the teacher's voicemail. After school hours, voice mails are stored in a general mail box and transferred to the teacher's voicemail the next school day.
Our Office Staff are Notaries. Notary services are provided at no cost, if they are available. Please bring identification. The document must be signed in the presence of the Notary.
We look forward to sharing our school with you!
All visitors are required to report to the school office upon arriving at school. Parents are encouraged and welcomed to visit the school, but we ask that you come through the office and not go directly to the classroom. Office personnel will be happy to send for your child, deliver a message, etc. This policy is for the protection of the students and to avoid disruption of classes. Student visitors and small children are not permitted to visit the school during school hours. Parents wanting to visit the classroom must make arrangements to do so at least 24 hours in advance with the teacher and administration. Parents will need to sign in at the office with their driver's license and obtain a visitor’s identification pass before visiting the classroom.
Checking Students Out
Parents must come to the office to receive a “checkout pass” when they are checking students out early from school. NO CHECKOUTS WILL BE PERMITTED AFTER 1:40 UNLESS THERE IS AN EMERGENCY. The parent will pick up a checkout pass signed and dated by the office staff. Office personnel will make an announcement to the classroom that the parent is coming to pick up the child in order to allow the child time to pack up. The parent will walk to the classroom and wait outside to avoid disturbing the class. Parents should not partake in any type of conference with teachers at this time. Students are not to leave the classroom with anyone until clearance is given through a signed office “checkout pass.” Early check out is acceptable only for situations such as doctor/dental appointments and illness. Please review the Attendance Policy regarding unexcused removal of students before the official dismissal time.
Students will not be allowed to walk or ride their bike off the campus until 2:10.
Bicycle riders will report to the cafeteria to be dismissed after the buses have departed.
Students will no longer be released to parents walking up to the car rider areas hallways or cafeteria. All students that are not riding on a bus or picked up by a car at either designated car rider ramp (walkers) will be escorted to to be released after the buses leave at 2:10.
Parents who wait to pick up their child in the designated pick-up areas should remain in the vehicle.
All arrangements necessary for your child’s destination and transportation after school are expected to be made prior to the student’s arrival at school. This will reduce the number of messages and class interruptions. It will also assure that your student will understand exactly what to do after school each day. Please remember that unless the office is notified in writing before 1:00 pm, students will be required to go home the way they came to school or their normal way home.
Cars should have the appropriate documentation in plain view of the passenger side of the windshield for pick-up. Notify your child's teacher if you need one.
Kindergarten and first grade bus students will be dismissed at 1:50 PM. Bus students in grades 2-5 will be dismissed at 2:00 PM.
