School Hours

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.
