School begins at 7:45 am. Any student entering the building after 7:45 am will be required to check in at the front desk for a tardy slip. Tardies will not be excused unless the student presents a doctor's note at check-in.

If a student is checked out of school for a doctors appointment, they should present an excuse issued by the doctor upon returning to school.

If a student is absent from school, the student must submit a doctor's note or a note written by parent/guardian in order to excuse the absence. Notes will not be accepted after 5 days.

Attendance notification letters are mailed out after a student has reached the following thresholds:

3 Days Absent

7 Days Absent

9 Days Absent

In accordance with state law, every child who has reach any of these thresholds will be issued a letter, regardless of whether an excuse was obtained by the Attendance Clerk.

Please refer to the Attendance Section of the Student-Parent Handbook or Contact me if there are any questions concerning attendance.
