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.

Western Fence Lizards at the School
Last week students after school found a baby Western Fence Lizard. These lizards are quite numerous this year. Students know them as “blue-bellies” because there is blue coloration on their undersides. Lizards can be kept as pets for a couple days and then should be returned to where they came from. (Adults legally need to have a fishing license if they take a Western Fence Lizard from nature for any reason.) On the Glen Cove Website there is a section under “Educational Interest” that has information on the natural history of the Glen Cove area. Also, there are other topics of interest about the local area.

ADA for Last Week 95.5%(Good); 122 Late Students is Not Good
We had 106 students absent last week which is an Average Daily Attendance (ADA) of 96%. There were 38 students who were truant. There were 122 students late for school last week. That is way too many students late to school! Every student that is late is an interruption to instruction.
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.
