Important Attendance Information

  • Our school day is from 7:45-3:10. All students should be at school by 7:45.
  • Seven absences in a semester are considered as excessive. Excused absences include medical or legal absences. You must have a note for illness absences to be excused.
  • Please call the office for every absence, whether it will be excused or not. Teachers do not record the information for absence excuses, the office does. It's very important that parents and the office staff communicate about absences.
  • Excessive absences can be referred to state or local authorities. Please help to avoid this by communicating with the office about absences.
