School hours are 9:00 am - 4:00pm
The building is open to receive students at 8:20 a.m. Please do not drop students off before this time as there may not be anyone to monitor them.
The end of the school day is 4:00 p.m. Students who leave school before 4:00 p.m. will be counted tardy until a doctor's note is received. To protect the instructional day of all students, we do not release students early to avoid long lines. Calling into classes to release students early is disruptive to the education of all students in that class. Emergencies and doctors appointments will be handled on a case by case basis.
For the safety of our students, the front door will be locked from 3:50-4:00. At this time, the entire student body is moving around the building to their dismissal location. Adding more people in the foyer area (adults standing waiting on their students with or without other small children) increases the traffic and is a safety hazard for our current and future Eagles. The door will be unlocked at 4:00 pm so that you may pick up your students. Please do not stand in our hallways and grab your students out of line. Just a reminder, when you pick your student up early it is considered a tardy. In addition, they are missing the last few minutes of their class.
What if I hate the long lines for pick up?
It is best to wait until a little after 4 pm. You will be amazed at how easy it is if you arrive at 4:05. There is plenty of parking, you are not technically late, and there are no lines. Try it and let us know what you think.
What do I do when I arrive at the school?
Your GPS will direct you to 42nd street. This is actually the rear of the school. You want to park in the parking lot on 44th street. Push the grey button on the door to gain access to the school. When you enter the school go to the front office. The lovely Ms. Hughes will guide you from there.
How does the school communicate with parents?
Communication – Freedom Park understands communication is important in any relationship. Please check out the following pages, instant/mobile messaging sites, and social media sites we use to communicate with our families. This is also a great way to get to know us better.
- Remind Parents – This is an instant messaging account we use to communicate real-time information. Example, “Parents this is a reminder that report cards are distributed tomorrow.”
- Remind Bus – It is the same instant messaging account. It is used to inform our parents when each school bus has arrived in the afternoons. You will receive another text when each bus leaves. We have four buses.
