Students are encouraged to attend school daily from 8:21 – 3:00 PM. In the event of an absence, a note explaining the absence must be submitted to a teacher within three days of the student returning to school. Any absence without an appropriate note will remain unexcused. After 8 unexcused absences the school district policy mandates that appropriate forms be completed and submitted to the Truancy Office. Your child is expected to attend school before or after doctor and dental appointments. Doctor or dental notes must indicate that a student was directed to stay home for the entire day or the note cannot be used to excuse a student absence. Please try to make doctor’s appointments for after-school hours. Also, there will be NO early dismissals after 2:30 PM. For questions regarding absences and lateness please contact the Main Office.
