Absence Procedures

Student Absences

If your child is absent from school, you will receive an automated phone call telling you that your child was marked absent. If your child will be absent for more than one day, you may call the Main Office in the morning, and work can be picked up at 3:00.  When your child returns to school, you must send in an excuse explaining the reason for his or her absence. Teachers will submit these excuses to the office for your child’s file.

Late Arrival / Early Dismissal

It is important that students arrive to school on time each day and remain at school for the entire school day. However, we realize that there will be exceptions when your child will need to sign in to school late and/or leave early due to an appointment, illness, etc.

If your child arrives to school after 9:05, you will need to sign him/her in at the Main Office. Mrs. Griffiths will give your child a tardy pass to give to your child’s classroom teacher, or she will call the teacher directly. We ask that parents not walk their children to class as this is disruptive to teachers and classrooms.

If you need to pick your child up before 3:00, you will need to sign him/her out at the Main Office. When you arrive, Mrs. Griffiths will call your child’s classroom to have him/her sent to the Main Office to meet you. Please send a note with your child with the approximate time that you will pick him/her up. This will assist staff in having children ready, especially if they are at lunch, recess, or a special. Please be prepared to show proper ID until the office staff gets to know you. For the safety of your child, please refrain from last minute changes.

Changes in Pick Up Bus

If your child has a change in his typical dismissal procedure, please send a note with your child. If teachers do not receive a note, children will be dismissed via their typical procedure (bus/pick up). If you forget to send a note, please call the Main Office by 10:00 am. Calls received after 2:00 can cause confusion with the dismissal process.

Thank you for keeping your child safe
