It is critical that your child attend school regularly. This shows your child that school is a priority. Recent studies have verified that students with high test scores and high achievement also have excellent attendance.
Students with several absences and/or many tardies may be referred to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB). On this panel are District officials, law enforcement officers and Department of Social Service administrators who meet with parents regarding their responsibility for their children and regular school attendance. Independent Study Contracts may be obtained from the office for a minimum of five days. However, please schedule vacations outside school days.
Every absence from school will require a note from a parent or guardian when the child returns to school or a telephone call to the attendance office at 294-6341. Our attendance clerk and/or automated system will inform you that evening if your child was marked absent.
