Absences and Tardies
If a parent or guardian does not call the school, the office staff will attempt to contact the parent/guardian. Absences which have been accounted for though telephone communication do not require a written note when a child returns to school. If a child has a communicable disease, a note indicating that a child may return to school is required from the physician. It is the responsibility of the student and/or parent/guardian to initiate make-up procedures for school work with the teacher. All make-up work needs to be completed within a reasonable time following the absence.
Student absences for the reasons listed below are considered unavoidable and entered as excused absences:
- Personal illness
- Family emergency
- Death in the family
- Medical and dental appointments which cannot be scheduled outside of the school day
- Religious observances
- Any other absence approved by the principal
- Students are expected to be on time to school every day. Students who are late to school with no excused reason will be marked tardy.
