Attendance at School

Regular attendance at school is one of the most significant predictors of school success and promotes a life skill that is vital to everyone's success in the world of adult work. Students who are ill need to remain home, but students need to establish the habit of being on time to school every day. Arriving late to school hurts the student and everyone in class when learning is interrupted. If your child will be absent, please call the school at 574-5700 to report the absence as early as possible. Unexcused absences penalize all students with the loss of funds from the state that provides everything for instruction in the classroom.

Independent Study Contracts

Contracts are available for students who may be absent due to necessities other than illness. Independent Study Contracts must be approved by the classroom teacher and the principal and should be requested at least five days prior to the absence. By knowing of the need for a contract three days in advance, the teacher can assemble appropriate learning activities. Independent Study Contracts are not available at the beginning or the end of the school year. Students must be in attendance during those times.

Students are required to complete all assignments in order to receive an "excused" absence. Incomplete work will result in an "unexcused" absence for your child.
