Tardy Policy

Please be aware that tardiness has a negative impact on student achievement. The instructional day at Upchurch Elementary will start promptly at 7:55 A.M. Students dropped off after this time are considered tardy and MUST BE ESCORTED TO THE FRONT OFFICE AND SIGNED IN. Please help keep our students safe!
