A student must be in attendance at least 167 days of the 177 school days  to be eligible for promotion.  Over 10 absences not covered with a doctor’s excuse or extenuating circumstances may result in failure, regardless of the student’s grades.


Absences due to illness are considered excused only with a written, dated, and signed notice from a doctor.  

***Preschool parents may write notes from home.



Students are expected to be at school on time.  The beginning school bell rings at 7:40 a.m.  Students must be signed in by a parent or responsible adult if they arrive at school after 7:40 and/or there is no longer a duty teacher present.  Five or more unexcused tardies will result in an after school detention (per nine weeks).

(Check-ins before 11:14 are considered present all day, but  tardy.  Check-ins between 11:14-12:55 are considered present 1/2 day.  Check-ins after 12:55 are marked as absent.)



In order to check out a student, you must present a picture ID and you must be listed on the child’s emergency card.  (Check-outs before 9:32 a.m. are marked as absent all day. Check-outs between 9:32a.m.-11:14 a.m. are marked absent 1/2 day.  Check-outs after 11:14 a.m. are marked as present all day.)  Students will not be allowed to check out any later than 2:15 p.m. except for emergencies. Buses beginning lining up in the parking lot at that time.
