Attendance at school every day is very important to student success on state assessments and for the next grade. Please encourage your child to be present every day.
If your child does need to miss school, then please be sure to send a note to school with your child when he/she returns. Notes may include, but are not limited to, parent notes and notes from a doctor, dentist, court, funeral, etc. Students may have 5 parent notes to excuse absences. Students may have an unlimited number of notes from a doctor, dentist, court, funeral, etc.
Students who do not have a note for an absence are considered unexcused. Students with unexcused absences will have their participation in non-graded extracurricular activities limited. In addition, if students do not have a note when they return, then we do not have proof that the absence was legitimate. Therefore, it is very important for students to bring a note to school and turn it in after being absent.
