School Hours:



8:15 AM-3:15 PM


Please Note:

Students are not allowed into the building before 7:45 am.

Parents may not drop off their children before 7:45 am.

This is a safety and supervision issue.



Regular attendance and punctuality are important from

the beginning of the school year until the last day.

Frequent absences, early dismissals and tardies

interfere with your child's progress

toward learning the necessary basic skills.


North Carolina law requires that all children enrolled in school must attend regularly. Parents are legally responsible for the school attendance of their children. 

Missing 10% of the year’s instruction may indeed

put a child “at risk” of not mastering grade level competencies. 

Children who have exceeded 10 days of unexcused absences 

are in violation of the law and,therefore;

the school can take necessary legal action

 to ensure that all students attend school.​



Following any absence, a student is required to present

written documentation from a parent, guardian or doctor 

including the date of the absence(s),

reason for the absence(s), 

and the signature of the parent, guardian, or doctor.

It is the parents’ or guardians’ responsibility

to call after-school day care centers

if their child is absent from school.

 Excessive absences could result in a family court referral. 



Students are considered tardy if they 

are not in their classrooms by 8:15 a.m.

 (This includes students being carpooled.) 

Students who are dropped off in carpool after

 8:15 am must have a parent come into the

 office sign them in for the day. 

All tardies are “unexcused” unless the student 

had a doctor/dentist appointment that 

morning or arrive on a late bus. 

Please provide a copy of the appointment

 to the secretary at the time of arrival to school.


 Consistent tardiness will be referred to the school counselor and Administrative team.


**Students whose home school is not Huntingtowne Farms Elementary and who do not comply with attendance, tardy, and dismissal expectations could be in violation of their transfer and could be sent back to their home school.



There will be no early dismissals after 2:30 p.m. 

as this disrupts classroom instruction at the end of the day. 

Adults asking for a child must show a valid photo ID. 

Students are only dismissed through the front office. 

Stop in the office upon your arrival.

 If you must pick your child up early for

a doctor or dentist appointment, 

please provide a copy of the visit 

to the office the next day. 

Please ask for early dismissal only when absolutely necessary.
