Each school day is valuable and cannot be compromised by unnecessary absences. Regular attendance is essential to the successful completion of requirements for each grade level.
When a student is ill, or for some other reason is not able to attend school, parents are requested to call the school before 9:00 AM
to report a child’s absence. If you don’t call , you must send a written note.
If possible, try to schedule doctor and dental appointments on non-school days or before or after school. All excuses must be writ- ten and submitted to the homeroom teacher. If the child needs to walk to the appointment, this should be written in the note and the child must check in at the school office before leaving and upon return from the appointment.
Students arriving later than 9:15 AM will be counted as 1/2 day absence. Any appointment that takes longer than one hour will be- come a half day absence.
