Absences and Tardies
Absences
Student attendance closely matches and nearly always mirrors academic achievement. Students who are absent from school miss the introduction of new material as well as the benefits of interacting with their peers in discussion, activities and presentations. Our attendance policy is designed to involve you as the parent through communication from the office and individual teachers, as well as to teach students to be responsible and academically accountable.
Our goal is to help your student be successful by encouraging them to attend school whenever possible.

Tardies
Students who arrive to class late are a distraction to the students in class as well as to their teacher. After looking closely at where tardies were the highest we decided last year to implement a sweep program. This has had a tremendously positive impact on getting students to first hour on time. As a result we will continue the sweep program this year. Please encourage your child to leave the house early enough to account for traffic and get to school on time.
