The first day of school for grades kindergarten through fifth is Tuesday, August 22.  Doors open at 6:50 AM and class will begin at 7:30 AM.  Wednesday, August 23 is the first day for preschool.

On Wednesday, August 16 from 8:30 a.m. until 10:00 a.m., Pocalla Springs Elementary will host a back to school open house.  Students and parents will meet teachers, view bus schedules, locate classrooms, and receive other information such as Parent Portal, car rider registration, and after school programs such as After CARES and Pocalla Springs in ACTION.

Please enter through the doors facing Bethel Church Road and report to the gym for grades 3-5 and the Palmetto Room for grades K-2.

Beginning August 7, our guidance office will be open for all new registrations and to receive any needed paperwork for your child’s records.  All registrations require the student’s birth certificate, immunization record, and proof of address.

Late arrivals and early departures during the school year may impact student grades and the chance for perfect attendance.  For late arrivals, students report to the attendance office for a tardy notice.  The late-arrival entrance is to the right of the main office entrance.  For early departures, on the morning of the early dismissal, parents must send a note to the principal.  For safety, students are released only to persons on the student’s emergency list and with written permission of the parent or legal guardian.  Proper identification must always be presented.  After 1:30, students are dismissed only with the approval of the grade-level administrator.

During the school year, if you would like to visit your child’s classroom, simply make arrangements your child’s teacher or grade-level administrator.  We accept visitors between 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.  Conferences may be arranged before or after school and during teacher planning.  Other visitor information will be available in the student handbook.

To drop off students, enter the main gate nearest the marquee and drop off students at the covered area past the main office.  Drop-off time for car riders begins at 6:50 a.m. for students who wish to eat breakfast.  Dismissal is at 2:15.  Car riders in grades pre-kindergarten through first and their siblings are picked up at the covered area past the main office (drop-off area).  Car riders in second through fifth grade are picked up at the covered area behind the cafeteria.
