Messages to Students: We realize end of day plans change or you have a message for your student. Please note that unless it is an emergency we deliver all notes to students at 3:15pm.
Pick-up Procedures: For early pick up please call ahead when you are 3-5 minutes away from school and we will call your student down to the office. They will be waiting in the office for a quick pick up – just sign them out and go!!
In an effort to alleviate multiple end of the day calls to classroom teachers, parents arriving after 3:30 pm will be asked to walk to the classroom for students.
Attendance Expectations: Regular attendance at Wilder Elementary School is expected and it is the law. As educators and parents we know there is a direct relationship between good attendance and academic progress. Classes begin at 9:06am. All absences and tardies must be reported to the school and can be done so by calling the 24 hour attendance reporting line at 303-734-5910303-734-5910. We ask that you use the main office number to report an absence only if it is after 10:00am on the day your child is absent. Absences and tardies, including, but not limited to, car trouble, oversleeping, parents running late, traffic, having to walk to school, missing the bus and completing homework are not generally excused. Students arriving after 9:06am must check in at the office to receive a late pass.
Medication at School: If your child needs to take medication during the school day, either prescription or over-the-counter drugs, there is a form that needs to be completed by a physician in order for a school district employee to administer the medication. This form can be picked up in the school health office at any time. In addition to the form, the medication must be brought to school by the parent in the prescription bottle or the purchased container (not in a plastic bag). If you have any questions please call Dawn or Amy in the Health Office at 303-347-4759303-347-4759.
