Student Drop Off/Pick Up

Please use the side entrance for student drop off in the morning and dismissal in the afternoon. The side entrance is on the left side of the parking lot.

Parents picking up their children after school please pull through the drop off/pick up loop on the left side of the parking lot at 3:05pm. Any student being picked up will report to the side entrance at 3:05pm. After picking up your child, we ask that you continue through the loop past the basketball courts and exit through the district parking lot.

All of our students enrolled at Candor Elementary School (PreK – 6th) are qualified to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at NO CHARGE to your household for the 2019-2020 school year!

When school begins, you will receive a household income survey (CEP Income Form). While your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee, we ask you to please fill out the income information survey and return to the elementary office by September 30, 2019. This form will enable the District to receive additional federal and state funding for our school.

Thank you in advance for filling this form out and returning it. We are very excited to have this program again this year!

Attendance Information
Attendance records become part of a student’s permanent school record. In the event of absence or tardiness, students MUST bring a written excuse to the attendance office when they return to campus. Your child has five (5) school days to hand in their excuse before it is recorded as an illegal excuse. 

On a daily basis, our attendance office verifies student absences with a call to the parents or guardians. For your convenience, you can call the Elementary office at 659-3935 ext 2, beginning at 8:00 a.m., to inform us of your child’s absence. Please know that a written excuse is still required upon your child’s return to school (according to N.Y. State guidelines). Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
