Breakfast at Upton
The Royal Oak School District, Oakland County and the State of Michigan consider good attendance important to academic success. Children are expected to arrive at school on time. Developing positive attendance patterns in the elementary grades establishes a foundation for good life habits. Consistent and regular daily attendance and punctuality encourages high performance and academic success in school. Also, when students arrive late or leave early, their education and that of their classmates is disrupted.
The first bell rings at 8:20 a.m. The tardy bell rings at 8:25 a.m. (For Late Starts, school starts at 9:25 a.m.) The Michigan Compulsory Code requires your child to be in school, and that school officials are obligated to enforce this code. Because of this, attendance letters will be mailed home to parents whose children have excessive absences and/or tardies.
All late students must be signed in at the main office before going to class. All absences should be called in to the Safety Check number. Absences that are not reported are considered unexcused.
