Parent & Student Reminders

Just a reminder that you may NOT drop your student off before 8:15 a.m. There is no student supervision before that time.

We encourage all families to use our drop off zone located at the back of Star Center.

If you are picking up your child at the end of the day, a parent or guardian needs to call the office at 262-348-7000 before 2:30pm or send a note with the student to let us know.

If there is a change to your child's normal bus routine, we require a note or a phone call by a parent or guardian to the school, 262-348-7000, to make that change. Please do so before 2:30pm.
I f you are going to be volunteering at Star Center (field trips, PTO events, classroom help, etc.) the District Administration requires a background check to be processed. Forms are available on-line or you can call the Star Center Office to request a form. Please note that the District Office needs
2 weeks to process each form.

Background checks are good for 3 years, so if you are unsure of whether you are still approved, you can call Star Center at 262-348-7000.
Thank you for your understanding and consideration.
