Parents are requested to call the school by 9:00 AM on each day a student is absent from school.
If parents have not called by 9:00 AM, school personnel will call to check on the child.
In the event that phone contact was not made by home or school, parents are requested to send a signed and dated note on the day the child returns to school explaining the reason for the absence.
Attendance is recorded twice each day: once in the morning and then again in the afternoon. Teachers mark students as either present, absent, or tardy.
Students are expected to be in their seats ready to begin work five minutes after the morning bell and five minutes after the noon-recess bell. Students are marked tardy if they are not in the classroom within the time specified.
Excessive absence from school is defined as six or more days absent (excused or unexcused) and/or ten or more tardies.
