About Tri-Valley Elementary

At Tri-Valley Elementary School, we work together every day to inspire success and achievement.

School Day

The student day is 8:05 a.m. – 2:50 p.m.


Buses release elementary students beginning at 8 a.m.

Dropping students off

Students not riding the bus should arrive no earlier than 7:55 a.m. at which time supervision is provided.
Parents transporting their children should enter by the 34 Moore Hill Road Main Entrance, Student Drop-Off Area.

Parents who need to enter the building must park in designated spots. Cars are never permitted in the outer circle with the buses.


Teachers will escort students to buses. Parents are not permitted to go directly to a bus at dismissal time.

Picking students up

At the end of the school day parents must use the blacktop area. Please arrive before 2:48 p.m. dismissal, sign your student out at the reception desk in the office, and depart prior to the buses exiting the school parking lot. You will not be permitted to drive in the outer or inner circles with the buses.

Standards Based Report Cards

The Tri-Valley Central School District is committed to ensuring that students are well prepared for the future. Providing a clear, complete communication tool is the main goal of the report card, which is standards based.

Regular school attendance and punctuality are essential for learning and are expected of all students. If your child will be absent please call 985-2296 ext. 5515 and leave a message or e-mail an excuse to attendance@trivalleycsd.org.

A written excuse is required by New York State law each time a student is absent or tardy. This excuse should be sent to school on the day the child returns. The note, signed by a parent or guardian, should clearly state the date of and reason for the absence. You can expect to be contacted by the school if your child is absent and we have not been notified.

Students with excessive absences will be contacted by the classroom teacher and the school principal. A meeting may be scheduled with school staff if absences are affecting student learning. Parents are strongly encouraged to discuss special circumstances with the classroom teacher.

You can learn more about our attendance guidelines in the Tri-Valley Elementary School Student/Parent Handbook.

Students in Grades 5 and 6 are eligible for a perfect attendance certificate each quarter.
