Attendance & Abscence Procedures
It is the parents’ responsibility, prior to the absence, late arrival or early departure from school to advise the school of their child’s situation. Please call before 9:00 am. at 684-7472 ext.2132 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. ALL students arriving late to school must enter by the reception and report to room 132. Students who leave school during the day must have parental permission (telephone call or note) prior to their departure and must sign out with the Secretary in Room 132.
Non-verified absences are considered truancy and may result in a detention or suspension from school. An absence is not verified when neither a telephone call nor a note was received, from a parent/guardian, prior to the absence. Absences are recorded daily for each period. The administration could request a meeting with the parents/guardians of students who are often truant from school.
A student, absent from a test, exam, or writing workshop does not have the right to sit at a later date (This absence should be verified by a medical certificate).
