A student must be in attendance daily. Students who miss school frequently fall behind and have increased workloads, which makes it difficult to retain information and progress on to the next grade. Please make sure your child is in school on school days and when absent that parent notes are brought to the attendance office within 7 days of the absence for the absence to be excused. Please make appointments for the afternoon if possible. Early dismissals are handled through the attendance office. There will be no early dismissals after 4:00 p.m.
