Walkers: Please submit the completed form to your campus’ front desk and inform your child’s teacher of the updated dismissal routine.
Arrival & Dismissal
We expect that Académie Lafayette students will be punctual and will attend school regularly.
Armour Campus School Time
8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Classes start at 8:00 a.m. Please avoid being tardy. Students who arrive late miss critical classroom instruction time. Late arrival in the classroom disturbs other students and teachers who are engaged in academic activities. Satisfactory school progress depends on regular attendance. Chronically late students receive poor training on the value of time and punctuality.
Chronic tardiness represents a financial burden for our school, as we need staff members to monitor and record all students who are late. Also, the state of Missouri reimburses the school based on the actual time each student spends at school.
If a student arrives at school after 8:00 a.m., he or she is tardy and will need to stop by the front desk to get a pass prior to joining class. A Saturday School write-up may be issued as a consequence after a third tardy and for each subsequent tardy.
* Every minute after 4:00 p.m., a $1 charge is incurred.
Change of dismissal plans
It’s important for students to have a regular routine, but if a change of plan is absolutely necessary, please call the Armour office by noon, by day at 816.800.8771, to inform us of the change. Please understand that we might not be able to honor changes after noon. For emergency dismissal changes, please do not email; call the office instead.
