Absences and Tardiness
Children are considered late if they enter their classrooms after 9:05 a.m. Late arrivals must report to the office before proceeding to their classrooms and receive a Tardy Slip from the Administrative Assistant. It is not necessary for a parent to sign a child into the building when they are late. Check in at the office is sufficient.
Parents must notify the school by 9:05 a.m. if a child is to be absent, tardy or dismissed. A written note must be submitted for each absence stating the date and reason of the absence. A doctor’s note is required after five consecutive absences. If a child has been hospitalized, a meeting should be scheduled with school personnel prior to the child returning to the classroom. Student absences affect the learning process. While a student may make up paperwork missed, he/she can never duplicate the learning experiences lost by a day’s absence.
Chronic tardiness, dismissals and absences are closely monitored.
