Attendance Policy
Regular attendance is essential to the learning process.  Unless the student is ill or has another legitimate excuse, he/she is expected to be at school every day.

If a student is absent from school, the parent or guardian should call the school nurse at 764-3720 x3203 to explain the absence.  When a student returns to school from an absence, he/she must bring a written excuse from home to the main office explaining the reason for the absence.
