Attendance Policy

Improving attendance is one of our goals.  Homework and make-up work cannot replace what students miss when they are absent from the classroom!  When a child must be absent from school, please

  • Contact the office at 435-8223 by 9:00 a.m. to report the absence.

  •  Bring in a doctor's excuse when you return if the child is seen by a physician or clinic.

  •  Let the office know if you would like to pick up make-up work in the office.

The following absences are excused

  • Illness or injury;

  • Death in the immediate family;

  • Medical or dental appointments;

  • Religious holidays or activities.

All other absences will be considered unexcused unless approved by the principal.
