Parents or guardians shall notify the school by 8:30 a.m. if a child will be absent by calling 835-2248. You may talk with the secretary or leave a message on the attendance answer line which is available 24hrs/day. Parents not calling the school will be contacted. Students’ absences will be considered unexcused if parents
do not notify the school or are not reached by 9:00 a.m.
When a child is late for school, parents must check them in at the office. Students will receive a pass before going to class. Students shall be counted tardy if they are not in their classrooms by 8:10 a.m. Students arriving after 9:00 a.m. are marked as an unexcused half day absence. Seven tardies will equal 1unexcused absence (UF). Consistent tardiness/absences may result in discipline and/or legal interventions.
All vacation days need to be pre-approved by the Principal. Students in good standing, according to the Extended Release Rubric, will be granted up to five days of vacation throughout the school year. Any vacation days beyond five will be coded Parental (PF) if work is completed prior to the vacation, otherwise it will be coded (UF)
