Reporting Absences & Early Dismissal:

Regular attendance and punctuality are important from the beginning of the school year until the last day. Frequent absences and tardies interfere with your child's progress toward learning the necessary basic skills.  Please allow up to 48 hours for your child's attendance to be updated in the system.  .

Excused Absences:

The following reasons are considered excuses for absences:

  • Personal illness (please state type of illness)
  • Medical appointments ( must provide a doctor's note)
  • Death in family
  • Court or Administrative proceedings
  • Approved Educational Leave (form must be submitted 10 days in advance) Approval is not guaranteed.
  • CMS Approved Religious holidays (form must be submitted 2 weeks in advance)
