AttendancePolicy

  • Regular school attendance is essential for students to make the most of their education.
  • Students must be present for 90% of the school year. All absences and tardies, both excused and unexcused, count against the 90% attendance rule.
  • When students are sick or out, a written note is required. The absence will be unexcused if a parent/guardian fails to provide a note within 3 days of the absence.
  • Calling to let us know that a student will be absent is great, but all absences must be followed up with a note.
  • Students may be retained based on attendance records.
slide13

Tardies

  • The tardy bell rings and the security door is shut at 8:00 am.
  • Students arriving after 8:00 must get a tardy slip from the front office.
  • If a student is tardy 10 or more times in a 9 month period a “failure to attend school” action will be filed with a judge.
