Absences and Tardies
Students must be in attendance for at least 90 percent of the days school is in session in order to receive credit for the school year. If students do not meet this requirement, only an official attendance committee can consider grade level advancement or credit reinstatement (EI Legal).
Students arriving after 7:30 AM are considered tardy and must check in through the office where they will receive a tardy slip. Continued tardiness will be brought to the attention of the parents and documented in Parent Center. The following steps will be followed for students tardy to school each semester.
3rd tardy Written warning; students with perfect attendance and three or more tardies will not be recognized at the honor assemblies
5th tardy After school detention assigned; student’s ability to participate in extra-curricular activities, such as choir and Safety Patrol, may be affected
7th tardy After school detention. Continued tardiness will result in disciplinary consequences.
Please send a parent note or medical excuse for any absence upon return. Students who are absent three consecutive days must bring an excuse from a physician. After 10 absences medical documentation must be provided for any subsequent absences. Students who are not present 90% of the school year will not be promoted to the next grade level. Please refer to the district student handbook for specific information on policies regarding absences and tardies.
