Attendance & Punctuality


Attendance is required. Furthermore, state education funds are generally determine by ADA (average daily attendance) statistics. Please see that your child attends school at all times and please notifiy the office if your child will be absent for any reason. When a student is away from school for five days or more under special circumstances, an Independent Study contract should be prearranged with the child's teacher.

Students should be on time and ready to go when the bell rings at 8:10 am. Please encourage your child to be punctual and to go right to the line-up area in the morning. If you are bringing your child to school by car, please allow extra minutes as the drop-off procedure is sometimes slow in the early morning due to traffic congestion. If a student cannot reach his or her classrom by the time the second bell rings at 8:15, he or she is responsible to obtain a tardy slip from the office.
