Procedure for Absences

Please remember that upon returning to school after an absence, the student must bring a note to the front office upon arrival to school. The note should contain the following:

Student’s full name

Date(s) of absence

Reminders about attendance:

Did you know that . . .?

Regular school attendance and academic success are connected.

Regular attendance and arriving to school on time are very important to a student’s success in school.

Excessive absenteeism hurts the student.

Students with repeated absences not only often fall behind academically, but these students also miss out on important socialization skills and concepts that enhance their ability to understand and follow directions.

One missed day of school is equivalent to as many as three days of catch up.

Students are given an allowance of days for make-up work; however, within in this framework of time, a child may struggle to learn all the missed material and information.
