School and Administrative Offices are Open to the Public by Appointment Only on the Following Days and Times:

· Monday Friday - 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

If you have a need to conduct on-site business, we ask that you call first to make an appointment and follow all guidelines to ensure the health and safety of staff and visitors.

Important Reminders:

Masks are required for anyone ages 10 or older.

Staff will coordinate the entry of visitors.

Practice physical distancing; remain six feet away from others.

If you have a fever and/or feel sick, do not enter the building.


Our children develop school habits during the elementary years. Please help us teach them the importance of being in school, and on time every single day. These are life skills that will help them as they grow into adulthood. Punctuality and regular school attendance are vital for our students’ academic success.

There will always be times when a child may be sick and cannot attend school. In this case, please call the school to let them know that your child will be out. However, please note that we must have a written excuse for any absence to be considered excused.

Students are expected to be in their classrooms by 7:30. It is preferable for students to enter their classroom at 7:20 each morning.

Students who arrive to school at 7:30 or later are considered tardy, and an adult must sign them in at the Main Office. Tardies are only excused with a doctor’s note.


GOT AN ABSENCE?

Hello Machen Nation! When your young STAR Mustang is absent or late to school, please be sure to report the absence or tardy using ONE of the following methods:
