Bell Schedule

MORNING DROP OFF

Please use the SOUTH parking lot for student drop off. Pull all the way forward in the drop off zone. Have your child exit vehicle quickly. This is a “Hug and Go” lane.

  • Do not use the center lane for dropping off your child – the center lane is for exiting the parking lot only.
  • If your child needs your assistance with getting out of the car please find a parking spot.
  • Please do not use the NORTH parking lot for student drop off in the morning. There is no adult supervision in this lot in the morning. 

Attendance Policy

Each time a student is going to be late or absent from school, we ask that you personally call the school office at (970) 254-4990 press 1 for attendance line. Please call before 9:00 a.m. the day of. If a student is absent for 3 or more days due to illness, then a written note from the child's physician is requested.

***Please notify the school office and your child's teacher if you know in advance
of any prolonged absence such as illness or vacation.  The office has a pre-approved absence form that you will need to fill out.  Click HERE for the form.

Except in the case of illness or emergency, children must be at school every day. Parents are strongly urged to avoid taking children out of school for activities that could be scheduled outside of the school day. If your son and/or daughter must leave prior to the end of the school day, he or she must check out through the school office and check back in through the school office when returning to school.

Tardiness and Absences

Research has shown us that the first fifteen minutes of the day are crucial for children's learning in school, and that it is educationally detrimental to students who are absent at the start of each day and miss hearing instructions and participating in the beginning of lessons. In addition to loosing valuable educational preparation time, it is also distracting to the rest of the class when a student enters the room after the class has started and the teacher has to stop instruction to bring the late arriving student up to speed with the rest of the class. We at Pomona ask that you as a parent make it a priority to get your children to school on time, so their day starts on a positive note.

If a child arrives at school after the second bell (8:55 a.m.) then he or she is considered tardy. The parent or guardian should accompany the student to the school office to sign their child in and the student will be given a tardy slip. The tardy slip should be given to the classroom teacher. This ensures that the student is not marked absent for the day.

*Under no circumstances shall a student be released to an adult who does not first
appear in the office to sign the student out.

Communication

One of our most effective ways of letting you know what is happening is through a written note home. Please reinforce with your child the importance of being the "messenger". Thursday is designated as Pomona's Take Home Day for school wide issues, programs and communications.

Classroom newsletters will be periodically sent home to help keep you updated on what your child is doing in class. Watch for the "Thursday Folder".

A student may use office telephones in an emergency only. Phone calls will not be permitted for such uses as; forgotten homework, sneakers, to ride another bus home, etc.

Students are discouraged from distributing party invitations at school. We encourage parents and students to handle the distribution of party invitations through the mail.

Report Cards & Conferences

Students receive report cards at the conclusion of every nine week period. These report cards will be sent home with the students. The Final report card is mailed to your home on the last working day of that the Pomona office is open. You can also view your child's report card and info at Parent VUE. Parent Teacher Conferences will be held at the end of the first nine week period and in the spring before the end of school. Spring Conferences may include meeting with teachers and or students individually or in an open house setting. Additionally we hold two winter night conferences for students that may be needing more academic interventions. These conferences are by invitation only.

Dress Code

Students should come to school dressed in a way the dignifies our school and the work that goes on at Pomona. Shirts, blouses, and tanks tops must provide coverage of shoulders or have a minimum shoulder of at least 3 inches. Shirts must be long enough to cover the midriff and meet the tops of pants or shorts. Clothing with spaghetti straps should not be worn at school. Clothing that advertises alcohol, tobacco, drugs, etc. are inappropriate for the school setting. Shorts may be worn, but must be at least fingertip in length.

Appropriate footwear is important to your child's safety at school, and be appropriate for recess and physical education. The wearing of open-toed shoes and sandals creates a greater possibility of injury. Students are required to wear sneakers on days they have physical education.  

In inclement weather, please send your child to school in appropriate clothing. Coats and gloves, as well as proper footwear are important to keeping your child comfortable while outside on the playground.

To avoid potential loss of articles, mark names clearly and permanently on your child's belongings. A lost and found area is located next to the library. Lost articles will be placed in this area and we encourage parents and children to check this area periodically. At the end of each semester, the unclaimed lost articles will be given to a local charitable organization.

Playground

Students are under the supervision of a teacher and/or aide while on the playground. Students should play only in areas that can be seen by the supervising staff member. Supervision of students on the playground begins at 8:30 am and ends at 4:00 pm (2:00 pm on Fridays). 

Personal Equipment

Children are allowed to bring their own playground equipment, with the exception of hard bats and balls, to play with on the playground. No electronic devices including CD players, Game systems, IPODS, etc. will be allowed at school. All items brought from home must be clearly marked with the child's name. The school cannot be responsible for items lost or stolen. Safety is our main concern and we reserve the right to exclude any items we deem unsafe or inappropriate.

Cafeteria
