History: Mildred Field Elementary first opened its doors in the fall of 1976. The bicentennial year gave us our eagle mascot and our red, white, and blue school colors.
Location: 1000 S. Haggerty Road. We are in the southeast quadrant of the Plymouth-Canton Community School District.
Drop-Off and Pick-Up
Every school in America does this differently and we each are trying to find an efficient way of doing this. We think our process works well at morning drop-off and sufficiently at afternoon pick-up.
Drop-off- Pull in to the right traffic circle. Pull up as far as traffic allows. Drop your child off. Exit at the traffic light only.
Pick-up- All students leave at once so expect a back-up. We pack in two rows of cars into the traffic circle. By the time the students are dismissed, the cars are stopped in the right lane on Haggerty. As the students come out, we put them into their cars. We also have a parking lot that many people use. This is the only area where you can leave your car unattended and go to the classroom door to get your child.
Since school attendance is compulsory, we are mandated to keep track of student attendance. Clearly, it is imperative to have your child at school. It is also important to have them to school on time. The teacher gets into their routine first thing in the morning. When students arrive late, the teacher has to stop teaching to get that student started in their day.
When a student reaches 10 unexcused absences, we have to send a letter to the parents, as well as, the county prosecutor. If the attendance of the student does not improve, the parent will have to appear in court.
At Field Elementary School our students go outside for recess twice a day unless it is raining or if the wind chill is below 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Children are expected to go outside for recess unless there is a note from a doctor. Children should be dressed appropriately for winter recess, including mittens or gloves, boots, scarves, snow clothes, etc.
