Attendance and Absences

​​Attendance header

Each child must bring a written excuse from the parent/guardian stating the reason for absence upon his/her return to school. The absence will be marked as unexcused until a note is received. Missing the school bus and/or oversleeping cannot be coded as an excused absence. Each student who accumulates more than 3 unexcused absences will be mailed a notice from the principal (required by state law) outlining the negative impact of student absences in school.
 
To report a school absence or if you have questions about an absence, email Mr. Posey.
 
Tardiness header 
Students who arrive to school after 8:00 AM must be signed in by a parent in the office. Once signed in, the student will receive a tardy pass and must report to his/her classroom. Tardy passes are issued to ensure that each child is registered present for the day. Students must be in their classroom by 8:00 AM or they will be counted tardy. Children signing in tardy after 11:30 AM will be counted absent for the day.​
