Parent Essentials

Attendance Policy

Please call 764-2020 ext. 2 to report you child absent or tardy.

  • Make every effort to be on time and present every day! This gives your child the very best opportunity to learn and be successful in school. Students are considered tardy if they arrive after 8:10, and will need to get a tardy slip from the office before going to class.
  • The parent/guardian must notify the school each day a student is absent. 
  • Bring documentation of doctor’s visits or appointments to the office clerk when students return to school.
  • After 5 unexcused absences, teachers make a referral to the counselor, and a parents are required to attend an attendance meeting to sign an attendance contract. 
  • If a pattern of repeated absences continues, the school may make a home visit.
  • After 10 unexcused absences, a referral will be made to The Children’s Court Liaison.

Dress Code

Dolores Gonzales has a student uniforms policy. Students should be in proper uniform every day. Any student not wearing a proper uniform will receive an “out of uniform” notice to take home, and parents will be called and asked to bring the student a proper uniform.

  • Polo Shirt (with collar) in any SOLID color
  • Pants, shorts, (medium length) kirts, jumpers in khaki, dark blue, black, gray and tan
  • Cargo pants or jeans are NOT uniform clothing
  • Athletic shoes are required for P.E.

Student Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

We ask that parents and students please walk through the atrium to the schoolyard to line up when the bell rings.  Please do not remain in the hallway in front of the office or any other part of the school.  Students should meet their teacher outside.

Students are to be sent to the pick up line in the front of the school ONLY if you are driving up to pick them up.  If you are parking and walking, students should line up with their class in the schoolyard where you can meet them.
