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.

Parent Conferences November 12th through 21st -- All Minimum Days with Dismissal at 1:00
Parent Conference Scheduling and Suggestions
Be sure you have a time scheduled for your parent conferences. Teachers have sent home forms for scheduling. Many parents have yet to respond and as yet are not scheduled. Be sure that you are on time to your parent conference as these are scheduled back-to-back with little wiggle room for parents who are late.
At the parent conference, be sure to ask questions. Teachers will be explaining Common Core Curriculum and the new report card. They will be reviewing assessment data for your child and will tell you areas that you can work on at home. The focus of Common Core Curriculum is thinking and being able to explain reasons for answers in both language arts and math. We are emphasizing non-fiction text and writing. As an example, a grading area on the report card is “key ideas and details.” This would involve students referring to text as a basis for answers; recounting key details and explaining how they support the main idea; and describing the relationship between cause and effect in historical or scientific text.
27 First Graders to Be Excluded for No Physical!!!
At this time we have 27 first graders who can not come to school after November 17th unless they have a physical examination by a doctor. This is a state law for good reasons. At this time we have made numerous contacts to parents on this requirement. Please be sure your child has the required examination!!!!
Noon Duty Supervisors Needed!!!!
We very much need additional substitute noon duty supervisors at Glen Cove. This is a great way to be a part of the school and to get experience working with children. Please call the office if you are interested. Applications for positions need to be submitted using the website edjoin.org We can help you with this process.
Book Fair and Water Color Night November 18th
We will have another famous watercolor night on November 18th with Mr. Quig-Hartman starting at 6:30 PM. The PTA will also have a book fair night and will be selling food for families for a great night out at Glen Cove. Please mark your calendars!

There were 65 students late for school last week which is an improvement from the past several weeks! Please be sure your child is in school everyday and on time.

For school spirit, students are to wear spiritwear T-shirts or our school colors, blue and grey, on Fridays.
In order to register your child at school you must bring your child's birth certificate, shot records, and proof that you reside within our school boundaries.

After the start of the year, please avoid coming between 8:45 and 9:30 and 3:30-4:00 as these are very busy times for the office.
