Attendance

Attendance

Regular attendance is important to your child's academic, social, and emotional growth.  Students are expected to be in school on time every day.  Late arrivals and early dismissals are disruptive and detract from the classroom learning.  Attendance patterns established during a child's school years are often carried throughout his/her life.  Help your child establish good attendance habits.

 

 

Elementary attendance policy:  “A tardy is recorded anytime a student reports to school up to one hour past the official start of the school day.  Students arriving later than one hour past the official start time are considered absent half day.  An early dismissal is recorded anytime a student is dismissed within an hour of the official end of the school day.  Students dismissed more than one hour before the official end time are considered absent half day.  Students that leave during the school day for up to three hours are considered absent half day.  Students that leave during the school day for three or more hours are considered absent a full day.  Absences, tardies, and early dismissals are recorded throughout the school year and count against perfect attendance status.
