Good attendance is critical for success in school. All absences will be coded unexcused unless an email or a written note from the parent/guardian is received within three days. Tardies and early dismissals both are reflected on the report card as tardies. State law allows absences to be excused for the following reasons:

Illness or injury of the child
Death in the immediate family
Medical or dental appointments for the child
Court or administrative proceedings
Religious observance
Educational opportunity - Your request must be submitted for consideration at least three days prior to absence. An explanation of the trip/opportunity must be given.

Please fill out either the Absence Excuse Form or the Educational Opportunity Form. It will be sent directly to our data manager. Our data manager will forward the information to your child's teacher. Don't forget to click the send now button.
