Being tardy to a class 5 times within a quarter will result in detention.
ABSENCE POLICY: Arranged Absence: If a student has an above average attendance and academic record, there may be situations where the parent arranges with the principal and teacher for a planned absence to meet the need of a family situation. An independent study program will be arranged. Excused Absence: Excused absences are due to student’s illness, doctor or dental appointments, family bereavement or family critical illness. Parents must notify the school by phone or preferably in writing. Otherwise, the absence will be treated as an unexcused absence and grades will be lowered. Unexcused Absence: All absences not for the above reasons are considered unexcused. Teachers are not required to give make up work for unexcused absences. Grades will be lowered due to unexcused absences. ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES: When it is necessary for a student to be absent, please follow the procedures below:
Student MUST have a note from the parent or guardian stating the dates and reason for the absence in order for the student to be readmitted to school. An absence beyond 5 days must have a readmittance note from a doctor. These notes will become part of the student’s permanent folder.
Parents must call the school office after 8:30 AM on the morning of the absence and EACH DAY the child is absent. This prevents truancy. An official written note will still be required from parents on the day the student returns to school.
Communicable diseases (e.g. chicken pox, louse infestation, mumps, etc.) are to be reported to the school office by telephone as soon as diagnosed. Thereafter the school will inform the parents of other students of the possibility of exposure.
MAKE UP WORK RELATED TO ABSENCE:
If the child is ill with an extended illness, disability or family situation (more than 3 days), please contact the office and make arrangements for homework.
When parents request make up work, the teacher is notified. The teacher will try to have the assignments ready by 4:00 PM on the day requested or by the following morning.
When a child returns to school, he/she is responsible to make up assignments missed. The teacher will give deadlines for missed work.
