• Attendance

    Please read about important attendance policies.

    Please send in all doctor/parent notes when your child returns to school so that their attendance can be properly marked.


    A student is considered truant:

    1. After three (3) consecutive all-day absences, five (5) cumulative all-day absences, or five cumulative class absences within the same class period, which are not excused by a medical doctor's written statement, proof of bereavement, or principal's approval; or,
    2. After elementary school, the student has accumulated ten (10) or more unexcused tardy or early release days. (Note: Tardiness in middle and high schools is considered a disciplinary issue.)
