Students in grades 1-5 who are not lined up behind their teacher at the flag salute when the 8:55 am bell rings will be considered tardy.

Absences and tardies are tracked for dropout prevention and could affect your child’s attendance.

Parents or guardians have five school days to verify the reason for their child’s absence. If verification had not been received within this five day period, absence will be considered unexcused and cannot be changed, therefore the child is at risk of becoming truant.

Parents who take their student out of school on vacations are at risk of being declared a Legal Truant.
