Potter Gray & BGISD Attendance Policy

Below is an outline of our school and district's attendance policy. Instructional hours at Potter Gray are from 8:00am-3:00pm. If your child gets to school late (after 8:00am) they are considered tardy.


To excuse absences or tardies we must receive a written note (examples: doctors note, hand written parent note, or an email). Once the note is received by the front office, the attendance code is changed within Infinite Campus from an unexcused absence/tardy to an excused absence/tardy. If a child is quarantined due to Covid, once the quarantine or positive case is confirmed, those absences are automatically adjusted and do not require a written note.


At weeks end, Mr. Brown prints attendance letters and mails them to the parents of students who have either 3, 5 or 7 unexcused absences/tardies. If you receive one of these letters please communicate with the front office to provide proper paperwork for the absences on record.


EXCUSED ABSENCES AND TARDIES:


  1. Death or severe illness in the student’s immediate family;
  2. Illness of the student;
  3. Documented military leave/return of a parent or guardian;
  4. Other valid reasons as determined by the Principal, including trips qualifying as educational enhancement opportunities.


EXCUSED:


A student is allowed 5 days excused with parent notes and 7 days with doctor notes per school year. After 7 doctor notes have been used, the district medical excuse form must be submitted for excused absences and/or tardies. Parent and doctor notes must be turned in to the school within 72 hours of the student’s absence.


CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM: Missing more than 10% of the school year, or 17 days, for any reason, excused or unexcused. TRUANCY: A student who has been absent or tardy without a valid excuse for three or more days is considered truant. A student reported as a truant two or more times is a habitual truant. Students reaching the status of habitual truant can expect a home visit from a school district official. Continuing absences or tardies will result in referral to the court system.

Ident-a-Kid Visitor Sign-in

We ask all adults who would like to come in to our building at any point during the day to walk their child to their rooms or eat with them in the cafeteria to sign-in using the Ident-a-Kid system in the front office. Thank you for your understanding.

Lunch Room Volunteers

If you have time during your day to see wonderful, beautiful and hungry smiling faces at lunch then this opportunity is for you. Click the link here to sign-up to be a lunch volunteer this school year. It would be wonderful if our students could have two volunteers each day to help out during the busy lunch time.

With schools back in session, it’s more important than ever for all students to have health care

coverage. KCHIP can help. The Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program provides free health insurance for anyone under 19 in low-to-moderately-low-income households. So, if your child (or a child you know) needs health care coverage, please look into KCHIP. It covers practically everything. And it’s free. To learn about qualifications and how to apply, simply go to kynect.ky.gov/kchip or call (877) 524-4718.
