Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

  • Tardy:

    Students arriving after 7:30 a.m are considered tardy and must go to the office for a tardy slip  


    Cooke S.T.E.M. Academy has partnered with Ludington Middle School in order to ensure that bus transportation is available for siblings who attend both schools.

    Parents, if you have a Scholar who attends Ludington Middle School, Cooke S.T.E.M. Academy will be the drop off and pick up location for your Scholar.  Scholars attending Ludington Middle School should arrive at Cooke no later than 6:50 a.m.  The bus will depart at 7:00 a.m. to take students to school.  For dismissal, students from Ludington will arrive at Cooke by 2:40 p.m. so that the families of both schools can ride home together.  This has been implemented to assist in keeping parents from traveling to multiple locations. 

    Pick Up and Drop Off:

    These students will be escorted by their classroom teachers and exit through the main entrance doors and wait until their parent arrives.  

    In the event that a Scholar must leave school early, all Scholar pickups must be before 2:15 p.m.  Any Scholar that has not been signed out by 2:15 p.m. must remain in class until the end of the school day.
