Regular attendance is vital to the quality of a child’s education. Parents are the key in establishing and maintaining punctual, regular attendance habits. Each school has specific attendance policies listed in student handbooks; parents are encouraged to review these policies with their students.
If a child is kept home due to illness the child’s school should be notified as soon as possible; school personnel will try to contact parents if this has not been done.
Physicians advise that a child be fever-free for 24 hours before resuming normal activity. Parents/guardians must provide a written explanation/excuse for a student to take to school the day he/she returns from an absence. Parents may request that their child’s teacher(s) provide makeup assignments to prevent the child from falling behind the rest of the class.
As a safety precaution, students are not allowed to leave the school campus during school hours without clearance from the school principal/designee.
