Attendance Is Essential

Regular attendance is key to academic success and is the responsibility of parents and students. Since much of the learning cannot be made up (e.g., discussions, participation, etc.), students should remain out of school only when absolutely necessary. Excessive absences are a concern to us and should be to the child's family.  A student whose absences total 24 days or more in a school year and whose absences have negatively affected his/her academic progress may be retained. Teachers will inform parents when absences are affecting grades.

What to Do

When your child is going to be absent from school, the parent/guardian should call the attendance line before 9:00 a.m. to report the absence. When calling in an absence, please state child's name, teacher, grade and reason for absence. It is for your child's protection that this policy exists, and we appreciate your cooperation and support. Any absence not called in will be considered a truancy.

Homework, if requested, may be picked up in the school office after 2:45 p.m. Students will be given time to make up work when they return from their approved absence.

Students are considered tardy if they arrive at school after 8:15 a.m. The office should be contacted using the attendance hotline or in person by the child's parent or guardian when a child will be arriving late. A child is considered truant if the school is not contacted.

District policy on attendance includes:

  • Whenever a student is not present in a classroom, he/she is marked absent;

  • Excused absences are those validated by parents by phone on the day of absence or those prearranged by the parents;

  • Prearranged absences at least two school days in advance of the planned absence or as soon as possible;

  • Absences due to suspension are considered part of the total absence count;

  • All other absences are truancies and are subject to disciplinary action.

According to district policy, the student is responsible for obtaining make up assignments and for completing those assignments within prescribed time lines. A student returning from an absence will have an amount of time equivalent to the number of days absent to complete and turn in assignments. For prearranged absences, makeup tests and work should be completed before the absence begins, by the day of return or as individually arranged with the teacher.
