Attendance

Attendance

Automated Attendance line: 302-6621 

Absences

Your child's attendance at school is necessary to achieve the greatest academic growth. When your child misses school, he/she misses valuable learning time. Classrooms with perfect attendance will be recognized at Friday Flag Salute. Perfect attendance is being present at school every day with no tardies. Although we value school attendance, we also know that sick children belong at home in the good hands of a loved one. Absences due to illness are completely understandable.

For attendance accounting purposes, the only legally excused absence is illness, visit to the doctor or dentist, and bereavement.  All other absences are unexcused.  Our school district only receives funding for students who are present.

If your child must be absent, please phone the school's answering machine at 302-6621.  Please be prepared to leave the name of your child and his/her teacher name, reason for the absence, and the anticipated length of absence. Upon return, please send a written, signed excuse to school with your child.  State the reason and the date of the absence.

 

Independent Study Contracts

If your child will be absent for five or more days, please call/come into our office to arrange for an independent study contract.  So that the teachers have adequate time to prepare assignments, please notify your child's teacher at least four days in advance of your child being absent.

 

Tardy Policy

Please urge your child to be on time each day to school.  Tardiness can instill bad habits in children, and students miss the beginning of daily instruction.  Students who arrive after the 8:55am bell has rung must stop by the office and receive an admit slip before entering the classroom.  This tardy will be noted on their permanent attendance record.

 

Release From School

Written permission from the parent is required if a child will be deviating from his/her regular route home.  If your child will be going home with another student, we need a confirming note (date and signed) from you and the host parent.  Parents wishing to check out students during the school day must come to the office to sign him/her out of school. For safety reasons, please be prepared to show proper identification. Children must be picked up promptly at their dismissal time. School personnel will be on the duty each day from 3:20-3:35 at our dismissal areas.
