Davis Elementary School
💜💛You Bee-long at Davis!💛💜
Welcome Yellow Jackets!
This time of year is always so exciting! Everyone is buzzing around preparing our school for our bright and energetic Yellow Jackets. For many families you are returning to Davis, and for some you are coming for the first time. I want you all to know that each of our Yellow Jackets are special to us. Our small school size allows for our staff to know students all over the building. We are a family, and we will help our families in any way that we can.
Your student will be most successful when they know we are all on the same team--rooting for them! That's why we offer a variety of ways for you to be on campus with your student(s). You may walk your child to class the first week of school. You may also eat lunch with your child. We ask that you message your student's teacher in advance to let them know to expect you. Our PTO also offers 'Bee Good Cafe,' so watch out for an invitation this year. Our procedures are that all visitors check in through the front office. Our new system will ask you to scan your identification, so be sure to have your license on you. Please see our PTO table at Open House if you would like more information about being involved at Davis.
Lastly, be on the lookout for a letter from your child's teacher with information about the upcoming year! Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns as we make our final preparations for our Yellow Jackets! You can call 706.657.6300 Monday-Thursday 8:00-5:00 or email me at email@example.com. -Mrs. Barton, Principal
Davis Open House

🍀Davis Supports 4H☘️
✏️School Supply Lists📓
Only five (5) parent notes for student absences will be accepted throughout the school year without medical documentation.
After 2 days of unexcused absence, the parent/guardian will be contacted by the child’s teacher with a reminder of our attendance policies.
After 3 days of unexcused absences, the counselor will notify the parent/guardian of our policies and request parent and/or medical excuses.
When a student misses 4 unexcused days, the parent/guardian will be sent a letter regarding the attendance policy and a request for parent and/or medical excuses.
When a student has accumulated 5 unexcused absences, the principal will call a meeting with the parent/guardian to discuss Georgia law regarding attendance.
Upon the 6th unexcused absence, the parent/guardian will receive a certified letter, sent by the judicial system informing them of the time and date they are to meet with the Dade County Truancy Treatment Team. A plan for attendance for the student will be developed at that time and a contract will be signed.
If the contract is not followed and another unexcused absence occurs, the parent will be referred to the judicial system.
Student illness (Parent notes will be accepted for 5 days of absence only)
Serious illness or death in the immediate family
Observation of religious holidays of the student’s faith
Conditions which render attendance impossible or hazardous to student’s health/safety
If your child is in the hospital or has a doctor’s note stating that he/she will be subject to an extended period out of school due to his/her illness; please contact your child’s teacher, a counselor or an administrator as soon as possible.
**Excuses must be in writing and turned in to the student’s homeroom teacher or front office.
