important information

Dear Overlea Family,

Here are a few reminders:

 - School starts at 7:45 am. Doors open at 7:30 am. Students are late to school if they are not in their classes ready to learn at 7:45 am. 
 - If students arrive to school after 9 am, they must have an excuse note from a parent/guardian or a phone call will be made home.

- Please do not park in the bus loop after 1:45 pm as our buses arrive that early to prepare for afternoon dismissal.

- No early dismissals after 2 pm. If your scholar needs to leave early, please pick them up before 2 pm.

-ALL students must have a Student ID! If your child lost theirs, please use this link to purchase a new one. All students were given ID's if they had their picture taken at school either last year or this year. If they are new to Overlea, please have them to come to the front office to be put on a list to have an ID made for them.

Thank you for helping our school operations run smoothly! We appreciate your support!
