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.

ADA For Last Week 92% Very Poor Attendance!!!!
Yikes again -- we had 221 students absent last week giving us an ADA of 92%. This is a large and somewhat shocking decline in attendance for this year. We had 69 truancies. There were 74 students tardy last week. Please be sure your child is here everyday and on time. PLEASE DO NOT SIGN OUT YOUR CHILDREN EARLY. THIS IS DISRUPTIVE TO THE CLASSES. It is a truancy if students leave more than 30 minutes before the end of the day without a valid reason.
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 3:30-4:00 as these are very busy times for the office.
