Attendance Policy

Regular attendance at school each day plays a major role in the educational process of a child.  Please keep this in mind and help us emphasize the importance of being present the entire day.  Disruption in the day prevents students from receiving the full benefits of their education.  Our school day begins at 7:45 am.  Students arriving after that time will be marked as tardy. Parents who drive their children to school should arrive between 7:20am-7:45am to allow them enough time to report to class and prepare for the day. If your child will be absent, parents should make every effort to call the office.  The Power School program will automatically call and notify you that your child is absent from school. Please note that our system will still call even though you have called to let us know your child will be absent because our system is automatic.  All absences from school (full or partial day) require a written note from the parent containing the reason(s) for the absence and the date(s) of the absence(s).  Medical documentation may be required.
