Thursday Orange Folders

Reno Elementary provides every student with an orange folder at the beginning of the year. Please check the folder on Thursdays for the following items:


  • Upcoming events
  • Graded papers
  • Progress Reports (every 5th week of the 9 weeks). This will let you know the progress your student is making before the report card is sent home the 9th week of school.
  • Report Cards go out every nine weeks.
  • Other important school announcements

Attendance

Regular school attendance is essential. Absences from class may result in serious disruption of a student’s education. The student and parent should avoid unnecessary absences. Two important state laws—one dealing with compulsory attendance and the other with how attendance affects the award of a student’s final grade or course credit—are discussed below:


1) At the elementary level, students are considered absent if they come to school 20 minutes after the start of the school day or if they are checked out from school 20 minutes before the end of the school day.

-Upon returning to school after being absent, late to school, leaving early from school, or sent home, the student must bring a note that is signed by the parent/guardian that describes the reason for the absence

-When a student incurs three or more unexcused absences within a four-week period, the law requires the school to send notice to the parent. The notice will:

  • Remind the parent of his or her duty to monitor the student’s attendance and require the student to attend school;
  • Request a conference between school administrators and the parent; and
  • Inform the parent that the district will initiate truancy prevention measures.

A court of law may impose penalties against the parent if a school-aged student is deliberately not attending school. The district may file a complaint against the parent if the student incurs ten or more unexcused absences within a six-month period in the same school year.


2) Attendance for Credit or Final Grade (All Grade Levels) To receive credit or a final grade in a class, a student must attend the class at least 90 percent of the days it is offered. A student who attends fewer than 90 percent of the days the class is offered will be referred to the attendance review committee. The committee will determine whether there are extenuating circumstances for the absences and how the student can regain credit or a final grade.


*Please note students who are positive for COVID (with appropriate documentation) do NOT incur unexcused absences, therefore the above attendance laws do NOT pertain. Students who are electively quarantined (with appropriate documentation) will be excused absences as well.

Student Absence Notifications

Parents can now enter a future absence through Family Access. *Please note that an absence note still has to be sent to the office via paper or email.


To enter future absences in family access, go to absence requests. This will notify the school that the student will be absent.


*Any time your child is absent, please send a note to school so the absence can be coded accordingly.
