Student Attendance Policy!

The best way for each student to make the most of his/her education is to be present and on time every day.

Parents and guardians should notify the school as soon as possible if their children need to be absent for an excused reason (such as illness or a family emergency). Notes from parents/guardians will be accepted for up to 15 days after the absence. Doctors' notes will accepted at any time.

School leaders will make an effort to be in contact with families of absent students to find out why the student was absent, and what supports the student needs when s/he returns to school.

Attendance officers will visit families with students who have unexcused absences:

After on unexcused absence, the school will call the student's family.

After three unexcused absences, an attendance officer will visit the family to see what supports the student needs in order to return to school.

After five unexcused absences, the attendance officer will visit again , and bring an official letter to notify the family of the student's excessive absences.

After eight unexcused absences, the attendance officer will visit a third time, and bring a second official letter to notify the family of the student's excessive absences.

After ten unexcused absences, the student and his/her parents or guardians to court once a student is considered truant. You can avoid this communicating with the school about absences as soon as possible, and providing notes when appropriate.

After a student has earned three tardies in a semester, every three tardies after that will be counted as one unexcused absence. this means that attendance officers will work with some students who might never have missed a full day of school, but who are often late.
