    Attendance

    Regular attendance directly improves academic performance.  Children rely on their parents/guardians to ensure they are in school and on time.  It is the child’s responsibility to make up missed assignments.  Parents/Guardians will be notified by mail if your child’s absences or tardies are excessive and a pattern is developing. 

     

    A student must be present for half of the instructional day.  Therefore, students who arrive after 11:30 will be counted absent.  Students who are absent must return a note/email indicating the reason within 2 days of the absence to the child’s teacher.  Failure to do so will result in an “unexcused” absence.  Late arrivals and early checkouts count in the 20-day attendance policy.  Students with more than 20 absences shall not be promoted, except by the determination of the principal. 

     

    Arriving Late

    • Students who arrive after 8:00 AM must report to the office for a tardy slip.  The parent/guardian must accompany the child to the office and sign in him/her.  Visitors and students are asked to remain quiet during the announcements. Students must have no tardies to receive Perfect Attendance.  

     

    Leaving Early

    • If students need to be checked out early during the instructional day, parents/guardians must sign the child out in the main office.  No student will be checked out after 2:30.  Schedule your child’s appointments after school.  Students must have no early checkouts to receive Perfect Attendance.  Please make sure you have proper identification and/or authorization when checking out your child.
