Student attendance is essential to success in school. Most subjects are taught in sequence, requiring understanding of each concept in order to make progress. Sending work home to a student that was absent is not a replacement of the rich learning that takes place in the classroom.
Elementary school parents play the key role in stressing the important of regular, on-time attendance. Please remember that according to state policy, illness, medical appointment, and family emergency are the reasons for having an excused absence. Family trips should be planned on non-school days in order to support each student’s education. Persistent absenteeism and/or tardiness creates a genuine hardship for a student and the teacher and is regarded as a very serious problem.
Should a student need to be gone from school for an excused absence, please notify the school each day by phone, email, or note sent to the office.
