Daily attendance is required of all students.
If your child is ill or must be absent, please call 694-7694 before 8:45 a.m. Follow the directions on the answering machine and leave the appropriate information. If you do not report your child’s absence, the school nurse will call you. By calling you, we know your child is safe at home.
On the day your child returns to school after an absence, the child must bring a written excuse that contains the following information:
Date (s) child was absent
Reason for Absence
Teacher name and room number
Students who are tardy (arrive after 8:30 a.m.) must report to the office. You will be asked to write an excuse for the tardiness. IMPORTANT: Your child should come to school late rather than not at all.
