Attendance

When your child will be absent, late to school or picked up early, it is required that the office is contacted by phone or email by 8:30am. The attendance voicemail (ext 221) is on between the hours of 3:30pm and 7:30am.

If your child will miss school due a doctor or dental appointment, please obtain a doctor’s excuse and turn it into the office.

Parents are reminded that they may, by state law, excuse their child for all or part of no more than ten absences in a school year. Beyond those ten absences, it is the building principal’s responsibility to determine whether or not the student’s absence is excused. Unexcused absences lead to a student being considered truant. The school appreciates the cooperation of parents in ensuring the student’s regular attendance, which leads to increased student learning and success.
