Attendance & Tardiness

Attendance

Every student should attend school on a regular basis. Family vacations should be planned to correspond with school vacation dates. While teachers will do all that is possible to help students make up missed work, there is no way to adequately make up for lost time in class. State law requires that students miss no more than 10 unexcused days and 10 excused days. A student must be present at least three hours to be counted present for the day.

Tardiness

School begins at 8:05 AM. All students are to be in their classrooms no later than 8:05 AM. A student is tardy at 8:10. Any student who is tardy must be signed in at the School Office by a parent or guardian. A student will not be admitted to class without a tardy slip. Five (5) unexcused tardies per grading period equals one unexcused absence for 1st - 6th grade students.
