Regular Attendance Is Essential For Learning:
Regular attendance is critical to your child's education. Disruptions to your child's school attendance can have a significant impact on his or her academic performance. When a child is excessively absent, a parent-teacher conference will be held. If the problem continues, a parent-administrator conference will be scheduled. Excessive absences may result in an attendance hearing with a school administrator. If the attendance issues don't improve, a truancy order will be filed with the local court. Your child should attend school consistently and should be absent only for illness or emergencies. Please do not schedule extended family vacations during school time.
What To Do If Your Child Is Going To Be Absent:
Submit the Report an Absence Online form. This is the easiest and most efficient way to report your child's absence. This information is needed for our attendance reports. Let us know if your child has a contagious disease, confirmed by your child's physician, such as chicken pox, measles, mumps, or strep throat. We will watch for symptoms in other students and notify their parents when appropriate. Please provide the attendance clerk with a note from your physician indicating the diagnosis and release of your child to return to school. If your child did not see a medical professional, documentation regarding the reason for the absence will still be required. A maximum of five parent notes for absences will be accepted throughout the school year. Subsequent absences with a parent note will be reviewed by the designated campus administrator and may require a parent conference to clarify the reason for the continued absences
A child who was absent due to a fever must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school. If your child has been absent due to a lice outbreak, please have him/her meet with the nurse before returning to class. Please notify the school of any anticipated absence(s) due to out-of-town trips, family emergencies, or medical/dental appointments.
