Attendance & Punctuality

Attendance Line


Please call or email by 8:30 a.m. if your child is going to be absent.

When your child misses a day of school she/he misses many learning opportunities.  Having your child at school on time is of primary importance to us.

If your child is absent for any reason, please call the office by 8:30 a.m. the morning of the absence. Unverified absences will be considered truancies.

All students arriving at school after the first bell must report to the Office for a Tardy Slip.  Repeated tardies to school will result in loss of privileges and potential truancy documentation.

A letter will be sent to you if your child is repeatedly absent, regardless of the reason.  You may need to meet with the principal, or in some cases, be referred to the District Truant Officer.
