Attendance

Please have your child arrive promptly. Attendance counts start immediately and tardiness wastes instructional time.  If your child is going to be absent or late, please call the school.  You may request that homework be sent to the office for you to pick up. Please call as early in the day as possible to allow time for the teacher to get assignments and books together.

If your child arrives at school late, he/she must check in through the office before going to class.  If you are going to pick up your child early, please send a note to the teacher.  Also, you must stop by the office and sign him/her out. A student arriving at school late or taken out of school early will be counted absent for the part of the day missed. Any absence or tardy will prevent a student from receiving a perfect attendance award.  A note needs to be sent to school with your child if he/she needs to stay in at recess.  If your child needs to stay in longer than three days, a doctor's excuse is required.

The Board of Education believes that regular attendance is essential to achieving success in school.  Education is a total process based upon continual communication and shared responsibilities among parents, students, teachers and school. As students mature and progress through the educational system, they should increasingly assume responsibility for regular attendance.  However, parents have a legal and moral responsibility to require regular attendance at school.
