Attendance Policy

Prompt and regular attendance is necessary for all students to attain academic success. Missed days, tardiness, and leaving school early create gaps in instruction and student learning.

If an absence is unavoidable, parents or legal guardians must call the school each day that their child will be absent, and state 4 the reason for the absence. Please call 831-3301, ext. 2 for the attendance line. This call must be made before 9:30 a.m.

Excessive absences will be documented and may be addressed through a truancy letter and/or by our administrative team, and an attendance contract will be developed with administration.

Students are NOT allowed to leave the school grounds unless a parent or guardian signs them out through the office. Parents must come directly to the office and state the reason needed for an early release and show a state issued picture ID. Only those persons listed on the child’s registration information will be allowed to sign out a student. 

Classroom instruction continues until the dismissal bell, so early pickups are discouraged and will be addressed by administrators. Students will not be released within 30 minutes of the dismissal bell, so please plan accordingly.
