Arrival to School
Student attendance is based on the bell times. Students are expected to be at school for the 9:00 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. bell. In order to enter the school from the yard with their classroom, students must be here before that time. Any student who arrives after 9:00 or 12:45 must enter through the front door. They need to go to the main office to collect a late slip before they go to class. We stress the importance of punctuality to prevent loss of instructional time. When students reach 10 lates, or absences, a phone call home will be made by the classroom teacher. Any student that reaches 15 lates and/or absences, will receive an attendance warning letter, letting the parents know that academic progress can be affected by absenteeism. We wish for all of our students to be successful, and, learn the value of being on time.
If your child is going to be absent, please call the school before 9:00 a.m. to report their absence and the reason for their absence. This greatly helps the office to ensure our children are accounted for in a timely manner.
