Doors open for students at 9:00 AM. Students must be in their homerooms by 9:30 AM. The parent drop off door closes promptly at 9:25 AM. Even if cars are in line on the lot, the parent drop off door will close at 9:25 AM. This is to ensure the safety of our students and to make sure students arrive in their classrooms on time. Students that arrive in their homerooms after 9:30 AM will be marked tardy (late) to school. If your child is late to school, please bring your child to the front office to sign them in for the day. Dismissal begins at 4:00 PM.
If your child is absent, a note from the parent/guardian must be sent to school. When possible, please contact school the morning of the absence via phone or email. Reporting the absence in advance helps inform the teachers and enables them to prepare work for the student to complete (when applicable). Please send an email to: Winattendance@carrollk12.org to report your child's absence. Please include the student's name, grade, homeroom teacher and reason for the absence. Any absences without notes will be coded as unlawful.
All extended absences must be pre-approved in advance by an administrator. You can request approval by sending a letter to the Principal.
Please feel free to contact the office staff should you have any questions at (410) 751-3242.
New medication forms are needed every school year. Blank medication forms are available from the nurses or the CCPS website at www.carrollk12.org. Medications need to be brought to school by a parent/legal guardian along with a completed CCPS medication form. Controlled medications need to be counted with nurse when first brought to school. Students CANNOT transport medications to or from school. The prescription label on the bottle must match the completed CCPS medication form. All prescription medication must have a prescription label on them. This includes inhalers, epipens, as well as medication bottles. No medication will be accepted without the correct prescription label and a completed CCPS medication form also matching the prescription label. If there is a situation where a bottle is needed at home as well as at school, ask the pharmacy to provide an extra labeled medication bottle for school. All medications require a parent and doctor signature and CCPS medication form. This includes over-the-counter medications. Also, please provide unopened medication containers which don’t expire until the end of the school year.
If your child sustains an injury or has had a surgery, per CCPS policy, a physician's note is required to be given to the school nurse. You can have the physician write a doctor's note or you can have your physician complete the return to school form to the school nurse.

We also request that, if your child is ill, has a fever, is vomiting that they remain home until symptom free 24 hours. Attendance is very important, however, it is as important for our students and staff to minimize the amount of contagious germs spread during the day. If your child has a fever of 100F or greater, Carroll County Public Schools has initiated a new policy as recommended by the Center for Disease Control. This policy states that children with a fever of 100F or greater cannot return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of a fever reducer (Motrin or Tylenol).
For more information, please contact our school nurse. Lisa Spaid, RN - LisaSpaid@carrollk12.org
