Attendance

  • Attendance is a major factor in your child’s success. The goal at Spotswood Elementary is for students to maintain an average 95% attendance rate with the final goal of a 97% attendance rate.

    If your child will be absent from school, please call the school office before 10:00 a.m. on that day. All students who return to school after being absent are expected to bring a note from their parents stating the dates and reason for the absence.

    Please note that in order to have an absence excused, you must either call the school the day of the absence or write a note to the school upon the child’s return. Vacation is not an excused absence.

    If your child has 10 unexcused absences, you will receive a letter of notification. The student will be withdrawn from the attendance rolls for 15 days of consecutive absence.

    Students will be marked tardy if they arrive at school after 8:45am.  Please bring your child to the office to sign in.
     
    You are encouraged to make every effort to have your child in school all day every day.
