Southland Elementary - Parent Link

Drop-Off:
Morning drop-off (7:45-8:15) can be done at the Main Entrance/Office or the Elementary wing on the East side of the building only. We are looking at the safety of the students and all the traffic that there is at that time.
If you are dropping off your student after 8:15 or before 3:00, please do so at the Main Entrance, NOT the Elementary Doors. The office needs to make sure that the kids are getting checked in/out accordingly. 
Pick-Up:
After school pick-up (after 3:00) can be done at the Office or classroom. If you are picking up on the East side by the Elementary wing, please come into the building and pick your child up in their classrooms. If you are picking up your student before 3:00, please do so at the Main Entrance, NOT the Elementary Doors. The office needs to make sure that the kids are getting checked in/out accordingly.
Any Absence:
If your child has to be gone from school instruction, please contact the office by phone at 507-582-3568, or by email klowe@isd500.k12.mn.us

A detailed message as to why they are gone (ill and symptoms, appointment, out of town....) is much appreciated. Nurse Emily will follow up if need be. Thank you so much for your cooperation.
