TARDINESS/ABSENCES All students arriving at school AFTER 8:49 am are to report to the tardy desk or main office before going to their classroom. If your child does not report, it may result in them being marked absent. Students arriving after 9:30am are marked absent non-exempt unless they arrive with a written medical excuse, then they are marked absent exempt. Students leaving before 3pm will also be marked absent non- exempt or absent exempt, if they provide a written medical excuse.
CHILDREN LEAVING WHILE SCHOOL IS IN SESSION ( See Tardiness/Absences above) Children are not permitted to go home by themselves while school is in session. This policy is intended for the protection of the child. When it becomes necessary for a child to go home due to illness or pre-arranged appointment, a parent or other responsible person designated by the parent must come into the office to sign out the child. Parents are reminded to make dental and medical appointment for children after school hours, whenever possible. Please send an email to the teacher regarding pre-arranged absences.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT STUDENTS MAINTAIN GOOD ATTENDANCE AND ARRIVE TO SCHOOL ON TIME EVERY DAY. EXCESSIVE ABSENTEEISM AND TARDINESS IS DETRIMENTAL TO A STUDENT’S ABILITY TO ACHIEVE HIS/HER HIGHEST LEVEL.
