Student Absences

Regular school attendance is key to student success.

When at all possible, please notify us when your child is absent by calling the student absence line at the school.

Absent students need to return with a note explaining the reason for being gone. An absence note is a must! Otherwise, we record your student's absence as "unexcused."

Please note that if a student is absent 20 or more times in a school year, we will not pass them to the next grade level. We also will not allow any eighth grader with even one truancy to participate in graduation ceremonies.
