Absence Procedures

Please Follow the Directions on This Page Pertaining to Your Student's Absence

Please send a note to our attendance secretary, Ms. Gartrell, to report your student's absence and the reason for the absence. 

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.

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

  • Religious family

  • Religious holidays

Parents should make all elective medical and dental appointments for times outside of school hours.

When a student is tardy (after 7:15am), they are to report to the Front Office. The secretaries will log their tardy and provide them with a pass to class.
