Attendance & Lateness

It is imperative that your child come to school every day on time prepared to learn. Research states that a child that comes to school every day and on time is successful throughout life. We want all our children to succeed.


Attendance records are legal documents that will be considered when determining holdover status, cases of educational neglect or for other legal proceedings.

If your child is going to be absent it is very important that you submit a written notice from your child's doctor or a parent/guardian.

Absence is not considered an excuse for failing to meet work deadlines or for not completing homework.


In order for students to optimize their learning, they are expected to arrive to school on time every day.

  • Doors open at 8:15 a.m. every morning
  • School starts promptly at 8:20 a.m.
  • Students who are not in their classroom by 8:35 a.m., will automatically be marked late and students will be asked to sign the Lateness notebook in their classroom.
  • Students who arrive after 9:20 a.m. must be escorted to the school with their parent/guardian.
