Attendance Matters!

ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT!
Students can't learn school content if they aren't here!
 
Please help us improve our attendance. We understand that our kiddos need to miss school from time to time due to sickness or family crisis. However, we need them to be here at school as much as possible.
 
Just a reminder - this is in the student handbook you received at Meet the Teacher:
Policy for Make-Up Work: Upon return to school from EXCUSED absence(s), students have up to three days to complete and turn-in make-up work to teachers.
 
If a student has an UNEXCUSED absence, he or she could receive a zero for tests/assignments given on that day.
 
The following are permissible reasons for excused absences:
Student illness
Inclement weather, which makes it dangerous for students to attend school (as announced by the Superintendent)
Legal quarantine
Death in the immediate family
Emergency condition as determined by the principal or superintendent
Absence to observe traditional religious holidays of local, national, or international origin when verified by the student's minister or religious leader.
 
A written note from the parents or guardians will excuse absences for up to but not exceeding nine absences in grades K-8 and four absences in grades 9-12. Future absences for illness will require a doctor's note in order to be excused.
