2017-18 School Year
School Hours for 2017-18:
Gr. K-5: 9:05-3:35 p.m.
(Students enter the building when the first bell rings at 8:55 a.m. - no supervision of students is provided before 8:55 a.m.)
Office Hours during the school year: 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Attendance: If your child will be absent or late, please call the Wilshire Park Attendance Line and leave a message (24 hours/day) 612.706.1204 or e-mail Helen (link sends e-mail) in the School Office.
Anticipated absences of 3 or more days (pre-approved):
The intent of this type of excuse is to provide an opportunity for students to accompany their parents/guardians on a vacation that cannot be scheduled when school is not in session. Vacations taken during school days fall within the excused category if the vacation has been pre-approved by the principal. To obtain a pre-approval, please communicate to your child's teacher and to Helen in the School Office (612.706.1204) about your child's extended absence at least one week in advance of the absence. When considering the approval or denial of anticipated absences, administrators consider the student’s previous attendance records as well as their current level of academic concern.
Because the interaction that takes place in the classroom can never be duplicated through make up work, we strongly encourage students to take vacations during days in which school is not in session.
Transportation: If your child is delayed coming home on the bus, please call our Bus Company: Metropolitan Transportation Network – 763-571-1541.
