School attendance and punctuality are important factors in student academic, social, and emotional progress. Attendance procedures are noted below and can be found on the district website. Our goal is to create a safe, connected school environment through partnering with families to promote student success.
When you must keep your child home from school, call the school office by 9:00am to report the absence. This allows the school personnel to be informed as to your child’s recovery progress and helps to ensure your child’s safety.
