Dear Parents

Clara Reynolds Elementary School recognizes the importance of parental involvement in the education of our students, so we are committed to promoting diversity of thought and strong collaboration to create an environment of excellence and achievement.



Information and Procedures


School Day Hours: 8:05 A.M. – 2:50 P.M.

Car Rider Safety Procedures:

Morning Arrival
Please remember that no car riders are to be dropped off at school before 7:30 a.m.  Tardy bell is at 8:05 a.m.
It is important that all cars use the car loading loop area (NW side of the building.)  It is unsafe to mix buses and cars.  Do not drop off students in the area bus zone. 

Please don’t allow your child to walk across the parking lot unsupervised.  This creates a safety issue.
Please drive through the proper lane and let your child out on the sidewalk or escort them in the traffic area to ensure their safety.

Afternoon Pick-up
For safety of our students at afternoon pick up cars need to use the same area (NW side of the building) and do not pick up students where buses are entering.  Pick-up time is 2:50.

Your child’s safety is our greatest concern.



                                                               Attendance is Important


At Clara Reynolds Elementary we are committed to offering the best educational program possible. We believe that school attendance is vitally important to academic success and our overall plan for academic growth. If students are not in attendance they miss out on valuable instruction, class discussion, and lessons that lay the groundwork for future achievement.
Attendance is closely monitored. We strictly enforce the attendance policies of the district and the Oklahoma law concerning school attendance.

Oklahoma School Attendance Law – "If a child is absent four or more days or parts of days within a four week period or is absent without valid excuse for ten (10) or more days or parts of days within a semester, the attendance officer shall notify the parent of the child and immediately report such absences to the district attorney in the county wherein the school is located for juvenile proceedings pursuant to Title 10 of the Oklahoma Statues. Furthermore, any person having control of a child between five (5) and eighteen (18) years of age is required to compel that child to attend school. Failure to do so may result in fines up to one hundred dollars ($100) and/or imprisonment."

How can you help us improve attendance rates and student achievement?

  1. Make sure students arrive on time each day.
  2. Do not plan vacations that require students to miss school.
  3. Schedule appointments for doctors and dentists after 1:30. (If students are in attendance until 1:30 they can be counted present.)
