  5. LATE SLIPS In order to create a more efficient system for late students, we have created new late slips.  Attached please find an example of the  Casa Late Slip and the Elementary Late Slip.  The Elementary late slip will continue to be a handwritten paper copy but with only one side to complete.  The Casa late slip will be a laminated card of which we will have 10 numbered copies.  Casa (preschool & kindergarten) parents will continue to sign in/out on the sheets at the front desk and simply take one of the laminated cards to the classroom teacher.  This new system will be in place starting Mon, Nov 25th.  We hope that this helps streamline the morning routine.  Please let Jeanne know if you have any questions.
