Attendance/Tardy Policies

All students who have been absent are required to bring a note signed by their parent or guardian explaining the absence. We are required to keep these notes and report attendance to the state. When students are tardy, they miss morning news and directions for the day. Please make every effort to have your child here on time. Regular attendance is required by law and necessary for the completion of a successful school year. Please note the following:

1. On a daily basis, student absences will be recorded as unexcused. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to promptly report the reason for the student's absence to the school in writing.

2. Excused absences include: a.)illness, injury or other insurmountable condition b.)illness or death of a member of a student's immediate family c.)recognized religious holiday or religious instruction d.)medical appointments e.)participation in an approved activity or class of instruction held at another school site f.)prearranged absences of educational value with the principal's prior approval.
