Attendance

All students are expected to be at school and in class by 8:00 am each day. If a child is absent for any reason, a written excuse is required within three days of the date that the student returns to school. If an excuse is not received, the absence will be coded as ‘unexcused’. If a student has three consecutive unexcused absences or five total unexcused absences, then the student will be classified as ‘truant’ and a parent conference will be required to complete an Attendance Intervention Plan. Also, once a student has accumulated ten absences, a medical excuse will be required for all additional absences. If you have questions regarding attendance, please contact the assistant principal at 397-4800.
