Our school day begins at 8:30 am and ends at 3:30 pm. Arriving to school after 8:30 will result in your child accumulating a tardy. Please keep in mind that even though your child may only be a few minutes late, several tardies can add up quickly to a significant amount of instructional time being lost. Please refer to the district policy below that outlines the consequences for tardies.
If your child is sick, or if there is a family emergency, please inform the office of your child’s absence before 9:00 am the following day. If we do not hear from you as to why your child is/was absent, the absence is considered to be unexcused. Please refer to the district policy below that outlines the consequences for unexcused absences.
Also keep in mind that routinely checking a student out early can also add up to hours and days of unexcused absences. The students are working together as classes to maintain perfect attendance, so help them out by trying as much as possible to make all appointments after 3:30.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at school any time.
