Due to Early Departures during the School Day, the disruption of the academic school day has become a huge concern.  As a result, this has prompted the following notice which will be in effect as of Monday, September 23rd, 2019.


When a student is to leave school before the regular dismissal time, a written note is required.  The note is to be presented to the teacher prior to the time of departure. Please, NO phone calls.  The student will report to the office at the designated time on the note and will be picked up by the parent who signs out the child.  This will prevent interrupting the class when a student is called to the office. The school does not release a child to anyone other than the parent, legal guardian, or adult listed on the school record.  A student may not be released early on a continual basis.  Patterns of early departure or consistent appointments made at the same class time will result in a conference with administration.  The school encourages all doctor and dental appointments be made after 3:15pm when the instructional day has ended.  Your continued support is greatly appreciated.


Promptness is an indication of good self-discipline. Habitual tardiness seriously disrupts the educational process of other students and affects school performance of the student who is tardy. It is the responsibility of the parents to make sure the student is punctual to school. Habitual tardiness will require a conference between the parents, student, and teacher.
Elementary school is a time of change.  The work load and social adjustments are greater here than at any other school level.  Your child will be expected to attend school regularly, complete all assignments, and behave appropriately.  Your child's years or year will be exciting and filled with many new opportunities.

Please note the students' New Year's Resolutions for 2019-2020:
  1. Perfect Attendance
  2. Honor Roll every six weeks
  3. No Tardies - School will start at 7:30AM
  4. All homework will be done
  5. Must practice F.I.P. at all times (Focus-Initiative-Persistence)
Good luck in you first year at Jesus. R. Perez Elementary School.  We hope it will be your most successful year ever.
Leo Ramos, Jr., Principal
