Student Absence and Attendance

  • REPORTING STUDENT ABSENCE

    Parents/Guardians are required to call the school nurse at 937-3600 ext. 3050 if their child is absent from school as well as sending in a note regarding his/her absence.  Parents are asked if possible to please try to schedule all appointments outside the school day so students do not miss instructional time.

     

    An absence note is also required and that can be given to your child's teacher.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's attendance or absence, you may contact the Associate Principal's secretary, Mrs. Stocklas, at 937-3600 x3010.

    STUDENT LATENESS

    Students who enter the school building after 8:35am must sign in at the security desk in the main lobby.  If students do not sign in when they are late, they will be marked absent.  Parents are asked if possible to please try to schedule all appointments outside the school day so students do not miss instructional time.

     

    RELIGIOUS OBSERVANCE

    The Board of Education recognizes that school will occasionally be in session on days during which students and their families must be absent to practice their religious beliefs.  Accordingly, the Board of Education directs the faculty and staff to make every effort to facilitate the exercise of students’ religious beliefs without placing them in a compromising position relative to school based academic and other expectations.

    When a student and/or his/her family notifies the school that a student will be absent for religious reasons, the school will make accommodations in testing and test review procedures on a case by case basis.  These accommodations may include re-scheduling a specific test for an individual student, providing notes or tape recordings of review sessions, providing make-up review sessions, and the like.
