Attendance Policy Update

An absence note must be turned in within three days of an absence, per district policy.  Failure to submit an absence note will result in the absence being marked illegal.  Absences will not be excused if the note is received after the three day window. 

All arrivals after 9:00 AM and before 11:00 AM are considered tardy.  When a student is tardy four times it is considered a half-day absence, regardless of the number of minutes missed.  Students who have been tardy eight times will have one full day absence accumulated, again, regardless of the number of minutes missed.

Students leaving prior to 2:30 PM will accumulate a half-day absence. 

Also, in addition, effective January 2016, students must submit an educational trip form to the school office 10 days prior to the absence or the absence will be considered illegal.  Students are permitted 5 educational trip days per year, with additional days to be considered illegal.  The form is available from the school office and on our web site. 

Please remember how important regular attendance is for your student's academic success.  Students learn and grow academically when they're in school.  Please make every effort to have your child at school on time and only keep them home when they are ill.   


Thank you for your cooperation!
