Dear Seaton Families,

It is important for each of our Seaton stingers to be in school each day, on time and in uniform. Students are welcome to arrive for breakfast as early as 8:15 a.m. The official start to the school day is 8:45 a.m. and students are considered tardy at 8:50 a.m. If you have questions about attendance, please contact Ms. Braswell-Wright (Erika.braswell@dc.gov), our school social worker.

Dismissal Procedures

At the sound of the bell at 3:15 p.m., Kindergarten, First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth grade teachers will escort their class to the playground area for dismissal. Parents are to meet their children outside at the 10th Street side of our playground. PK3 and PK4 students will be dismissed from their classrooms. On rainy days, all students will be dismissed from the lobby.
