Late Arrival and Attendance Policy:
Students must check-in at the student window when they arrive. To excuse the late arrival, students must have a written note with parent signature or a parent must accompany the student to the student window. If no form of excuse is received when the student arrives that morning, the student will be assigned an automatic 15 minute detention the following school day.
Regular attendance is critical to academic success! The responsibility to ensure good attendance is shared by the student, the parent and the school. If your child is ill, please remember to call in, as early as possible for each day your student is absent. For more on the Attendance Policy, please refer to your Student Handbook found in the Student Planner.
