Be Cool- Come to School!

Students, attendance in school is very important! If you are absent from school, you must provide an excuse when you return. If you bring in a note to leave school for a doctor’s appointment, you must bring in proof of a doctor’s visit. Drivers; all notes to check out of school MUST include a reason for checking out. Notes indicating the checkout is for an "appointment " is not sufficient. If absence is for a funeral, copy of obituary or program is required. Turn your notes into the front office as soon as you get to school in the morning. Remember you are only allowed 10 days excused or unexcused!
