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.

Safety Tips for Coyotes and Other Wildlife
Glen Cove is next to Benicia State Park and has several open nature areas in the community. There’s lots of wonderful wildlife in the area. The Glen Cove Website has a feature on the natural history of the area that is informative. In general it is best to teach children early to never approach wildlife and never to touch dead animals or birds as there can be a transmission of disease. Coyotes have been in the news recently and there has been a citing of them in the neighborhood. There are lots of safety tips on the internet. Here are a few of these tips: never feed coyotes or leave food outside; keep dogs on leashes; yell, clap hands, throw things, blow a whistle and try to make yourself look larger if you have a close encounter, also, don’t run away or turn away. Coyotes are shy and do not want trouble with humans. They are looking for food. Aggressive behavior should be reported to the police or the RI Division of Fish and Wildlife at 401-789-0281. Children should also be taught caution about touching and petting dogs.
