  • Absence Policy

    Tardy & Half-Day Attendance Times:

    • School begins at 8:05.
    • A student arriving at school between 8:05-9:00am will be considered tardy.
    • A student who signs into the building after 9:00am will be marked 1/2 day (AM) absent.
    • A student leaving school before 2:00pm will be marked 1/2 day (PM) absent.
    • A student picked up after 2:00pm will be considered an early leave (PM tardy)
    • 5 "tardies" = 1/2 day absence
    • 10 "tardies" = 1 day absence

    If your child is absent from school, we require a note from home explaining the reason for the absence when your child returns to school.

    If you call requesting homework to be sent home, and will be available at 3:25 pm on the day it is requested.
