Regular attendance is necessary in order to ensure students receive continuity in instruction.  If your child is absent, please call the school office by 8:00 am.   Upon return to school, a student must bring a written note to the homeroom teacher with the following information: child's name, date of absence, reason for absence and signature of parent or guardian.  

If any student is absent for four (4) or more consecutive days, a doctor's note must be presented to the school nurse upon return to school.  Any contagious disease must be reported as soon as diagnosed.

Parents are encouraged to schedule vacations that coincide with the school calendar.  Students are responsible for all material covered in their absence.  Teachers are not obligated to give the students school work during an extended vacation. 

* Standardized Testing is the week of March 5th through March 9th, and attendance is mandatory.



Students will be marked tardy if they are not in the classroom at the 7:40am bell.  Upon late arrival, students must report to the School Office for an admittance slip to class.  Three (3) unexcused tardies will result in an after school detention.  The only exception is when tardiness has been caused by the school bus. 

Students who are late begin the day poorly and interfere with their preparation for the day.  In addition, lateness causes disruptions to the teacher and other students as well.
