Attendance

Attendance

Parents must call in each day the student is absent at 291–6830.  Please give the student’s name, grade level, reason for the absence, the name of person calling and his/her relationship to the student. If no reason is given, or if no call is made, the absence will be considered unexcused. The voicemail system will answer from 4 pm to 7:30 am or if we are busy. Your message will be taken as soon as possible.

NOTE: School Messenger will call for ALL ABSENCES from the classroom. i.e.  UNEXCUSED and EXCUSED: field trips, doctor appointments, illness, etc. whether you have called the school or not. If you listen carefully, the call should tell you the reason that has been documented in the computer. Call us if you have any questions.

 

Absences may be excused for the following reasons with appropriate documentation: Doctor’s Appointment, Death in Family, Religious Commitment, Illness, Family Emergency, and Diagnostic Testing.

 

Family vacations taken during the school year are considered unexcused absences. It is expected that the family will schedule vacations during periods of time when school is not in session.  Regular attendance is a necessity for two reasons:  (1) it is required by state and federal law, and (2) it is essential to the student’s success, enjoyment, and achievement in school.

 

Students arriving to school prior to 8:20 should report directly to class. Students arriving after 8:20 are to report to the main office for a pass prior to going to class. To be dismissed early, the parent/guardian or emergency contact must report, with photo I.D, to the Attendance Office before the student may leave campus.  An I.D. is mandatory when signing out a student. Should a student have an emergency, the student should report to the office.  

  • NOTE:  Students should be reminded that they are NOT to leave campus for any reason once they have arrived at school.
