Absences

Sick Days:

It is important that your child is present at school and on time, each day.

If your child is sick, throwing up, fever or diarrhea, should they be kept home. Please try to make all appointments after school to ensure connectivity and engagement throughout our multi-disciplinary programs.


Tardies:

If your child is tardy, your student is missing out on the integral start of the school day, where norms and procedures and daily plans are introduced and students find comfort in knowing what is coming up next in the school day and week.


Independent Study Contract: If your family will be gone for 5 days or more, please connect with the office and classroom teacher to create a independent study contract. These should be used in the rare occasion that a child may need to miss school for 5 or more days. We highly discourage these plans as it creates a disruption for learning for the students, their classmates and is an incredible about of work for our classroom teachers. Please make all vacation plan during our regular scheduled breaks.


If you feel your family needs help making a plan to come to school, we can HELP! Please connect with tanyawhite@coronadousd.net for a meeting and opportunity to create a family plan to help with attendance/tardies.

CUSD School Wellness Policy Score Card Results

School wellness policies are evaluated based on the degree to which they address 67 policy items. These items are categorized into six sections:

1. Nutrition Education

2. Standards for USDA Child Nutrition Programs and School Meals

3. Nutrition Standards for Competitive and Other Foods and Beverages

4. Physical Education and Activity

5. Wellness Promotion and Marketing

6. Implementation, Evaluation and Communication

Each policy is rate "0-not mentioned, "1-weak statement," "2-meets or exceeds expectations"

The WellSAT will give you two scores: a comprehensiveness score, which reflects the extent to which recommended content areas are covered in the policy; and a strength score, which describes how strongly the content is stated. Both scores range from 0-100, with lower scores indicating less content and weaker language, and higher scores indicating more content and use of specific and directive language. This wellness assessment was tested in 2018 in a sample of 50 school districts around the country and the average comprehensiveness score was 54 and the average strength score was 33. Our district received a comprehensive score of 58 and a strength score of 48. As we have some areas of improvement, we are definitely on the right track to ensuring our district is doing it's part to keep our students and staff healthy.
