Attendance Matters

Attendance is essential for the progress of a student at school. The following are some rules/regulations to remember regarding the district attendance policy. Make sure to pay close attention to this section of your handbook which will come home with your student soon.


-Anyone arriving after the school day has started are required to check in through the office.

-If students need to leave school early, parents/guardians should sign those students out through the office

-Provide a doctor's excuse when possible

-A total of 5 absences will be excused, for reasons listed on page 4 of the handbook, based on parent/guardian notification via call-in, email, or note. Once the limit (5) has been reached, parents/guardians will receive a letter requiring doctor's excuses for future absences.

-A maximum of 3 days will be available for family cultural/educational activities annually. Forms are available in the office and on our school website. These forms must be filled out PRIOR to the requested days.

-After an accumulation of 3 unexcused absences, a student will enter into Tier 1 for attendance interventions which will include a conference with an attendance supervisor or designee and an attendance contract.
