Attendance & Tardiness

  • School attendance is very important to your child’s education. When your child is late or absent from school they fall behind in their class work. Obviously if your child is sick it is important that they stay home until they have recovered. Please call the front office and choose the attendance line to give your child's name, date, and reason for absence.  A signed note will still be required in order to excuse the absence.

    The office will assist in collecting homework for students who are absent from school for two or more days. If a student is absent from school for only one day, the homework can be collected by the student upon returning to school. All requests for homework/make-up work should be submitted to the front office by 9:30 a.m. Please indicate whether textbooks are needed. School work may be picked up after 2:00p.m.


    PLEASE help us keep tardiness to school at a minimum. When students arrive late to school they also arrive late for their first class resulting in lost instructional time and disruption to the instruction.


    All students should be at school by 7:50 a.m. This provides them with enough time to get to their lockers and report to homeroom by 8:00 a.m. Any student not in homeroom by 8:00 a.m. is recorded as tardy to school.
