Classroom Interruptions

Posted in Policies & Conduct

Crescent Elementary desires that all students receive the very best education and learning experience possible.  This can best be achieved by students' punctual arrival to school, consistent attendance and an instructional atmosphere without interruptions.

In order to facilitate this process Crescent Elementary will abide by the following procedures:


  1. School hour phone messages will be written up and delivered to teachers or students before school, at lunchtime or at the end of the school day.  Phone calls could also be transferred to voicemail so the teacher may return the call during non-instructional times.
  2. Students or school personnel needing to call a parent during school hours should leave a message regarding which classroom they are calling from and what the request is.
  3. Parents should pre-arrange to visit with the teacher before or after school.
  4. Forgotten lunches or homework assignments delivered to the office will be held for students to pick up on their way to lunch.
  5. Make-up homework can be given if the student misses three or more days. Teachers should be pre-notified by the parent in the morning for after school pick-up.  Email is a wonderful way to communicate with the teacher. Faculty email addresses can be found here. The office really appreciates when parents call the school to let us know why your student is absent.
