When your child is absent, call the school in the morning and report his absence. It is important that we are able to account for all children at all times. Be prepared to give the following information:
- Your name and your relationship to the child
- Student’s name
- Teacher’s name
- Reason for absence
- Date(s) of absence
If you are not able to communicate with the school on the day of your child’s absence, write a note that gives the above information and send it to school on the day your child returns. Student absences that are not cleared are noted as truancies until the absence is cleared by the parent /guardian.
Students who arrive after 8:45 will be marked tardy. When a student is late, he/she can go directly to their classroom. However, if he/she arrives after 9:15 they will need to report to the office and pick up an attendance card.
