Attendance Rules Summary
It is important for parents to understand the rules on attendance. Children can only be absent for three reasons: illness, doctor's appointment, or bereavement for immediate family. If a student is not in school for any other reason, they are marked as truant. Parents must call the school or write a note to verify an absence. It is also a truancy if a child is late by more than 30 minutes or picked up early by more than 30 minutes without a valid reason.
Please do not plan vacations on school days or to extend a weekend. This is not legal. Your child misses school and learns that schoolwork is not important. We very much want to improve our attendance and our student achievement -- both go together.

Student Dress -- Warm Weather On the Way…..
The school needs your cooperation in maintaining an environment in which learning is foremost. Students dressed in “play” clothes tend to behave accordingly. Children need to be dressed in clothing and footwear which allows them to participate in games and activities. However, half-shirts, short shorts, spaghetti straps, loose/torn shirts exposing shoulders and other extremely casual clothing should not be worn. (Shorts are to be below finger tips when arms are straight down.) For safety reasons, thongs or any sandals without a sturdy back strap may not be worn. “Message” T-shirts and hats featuring alcoholic beverages are not appropriate. Cosmetics are not allowed at school including colored lip gloss. Dark glasses are not allowed unless there is a medical reason for them. Any other glasses other than prescription are considered toys and not allowed. It is district policy that hats are not to be worn inside.
Great Assembly Last Week on Rhythm! Thank you PTA
We had another great assembly last week with the Cross Pulse Duo. They demonstrated many ways to do rhythms with clapping, spoons, boxes, African instruments and more. There are materials the group has created that can be purchased through their website at Crosspulse.com There is a manual for teaching math concepts using rhythm, songs, etc. Thank you PTA.
