Daily School Procedures

The school day begins at 7:40am and ends at 2:10pm. The SES front office is open from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm during the school year. 

You can reach the SES front office by dialing (317) 594-4340.  

Reporting Absences

Parents, please notify the front OFFICE in regard to absences and late arrivals. You can leave a message on our attendance line by calling (317) 594-4340 and selecting option 2. Please leave detailed information, including student's first and last names with spelling, teacher's name, grade, and reason for the absence or late arrival. If late arrival, please include approximate time student will be arriving.  Absences also can be reported through Dismissal Manager.


Leaving early for appointment

When arriving, please ring the silver button to the immediate left of the glass door closest to the front office.  Please wait inside the vestibule while we get your student for you.

Forgotten Items

If a student forgets an item at home and a parent needs to drop off that item after school has begun, that item may be dropped off in the front office vestibule. There is a table right inside the first set of doors on which you can place the item. Please have student's first and last names, and teacher's name, on the item and we will deliver it to the student.

Change Your Drop Off and Pick Up Plans

School Dismissal Manager is used for all daily dismissal changes including leaving early, appointments, absences, and changing dismissal type.

From within the portal, parents can schedule recurring exceptions such as carpool on Wednesday only, or YMCA every day, etc. Any changes need to be made by 1pm

Volunteering at SES

Please review the SafeVisitor information to learn more about the process and begin the steps for your background check.

Visitors/volunteers/chaperones MUST have a Safevisitor background check on file with Hamilton Southeastern Schools to be allowed to volunteer or chaperone in the building or for events.

Who Can Pick Up My Student(s)

If a student needs to leave early for any reason, only family and individuals listed on a student's approved Skyward list can pick up the student.

Under the "Family and Emergency Contact" tab in Skyward, list your approved people to pick up your student. Approved individuals must show a valid Driver's License.
