  •  According to state law, school attendance is mandatory for children.
  • Students will be excused for the following absences and tardies; a doctor/dental appointment, death in the family, religious commitment, illness, family emergency, or diagnostic testing.
  • A doctor's note will be required for absences longer than three consecutive days or when a pattern of absences is established. 
  • Family vacations are considered unexcused absences.



       If your child is absent, please call the school before 9 a.m.  296-5655 (press 3).  You may call and leave a message anytime before school hours. Please leave your child's name, teacher and reason for absence. If the absence is not reported, you will receive a phone call from the school and an automatic message from School Messenger. Please make sure all contact numbers are up to date in the office. 


               LATE STUDENTS WILL:

  1. Be escorted to the office by a parent/guardian.
  2. Check in the office and receive a tardy slip.
  3. Return the tardy slip to the classroom teacher. 


             STUDENT RELEASE:

  • Students may be released to adults during school hours.
  • Adults are required to show photo identification
  • Children will not be released during the school day to walk home alone.


Please be aware that picking up students before the end of the school day interrupts the instruction for the entire class.  Please  try to avoid picking your child up between 2:00 and 2:40.  If you do need to pick up your child during that time, please do not go to the child's classroom.  Go to the office to sign your child out, and the office will call for the child.
