Attendance and Tardy Policy

School Hours: 8:45 a.m. until 2:55 p.m.  The compulsory attendance policy is in the Student Code of Conduct book families received in their child’s first day packet. 

In summary, students are expected to be at school and in class ready for learning at 8:45 a.m. and to remain in class until dismissal begins.  A School Messenger phone message will be delivered each day your child is marked absence.  This is a reminder that all absences require a note of explanation to be considered excused.  At times, a doctor’s note may be required.  Students will be marked tardy if they are not in their classrooms at the 8:45 a.m. bell, designating the beginning of instruction.  Breakfast is served from 8:15 a.m. till 8:35 a.m.  If your child eats breakfast at school, please allow time for them to eat and get to class by 8:45 a.m.  Early dismissals are allowed for student doctor appointments or family emergencies only and require documentation.  Please adjust your schedule to support these guidelines. **

If your student is participating in Virtual Instruction this grading period, please check with your child's teacher for the attendance expectations.
