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.

Substitute Positions Available and Needed --
Para Educators, Teachers, Noon Duty, etc.

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. 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.
Spiritwear on Fridays
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. Before the start of the school year, come to the office any time between 8:00 and 3:00. After the start of the year, please avoid coming between 8:45 and 9:30 and 3:10 to 3:40 as these are very busy times for the office.
