Health & Attendance
Is my child well enough to go to school?
If your child is sick, you may be unsure if your child should stay home or if they can attend school. The following information is intended to help with this decision.
- If student has had a fever of 100 degrees or more, the student should stay home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal and remains normal without fever reducing medicine.
- If student has vomited or had diarrhea, the student should stay home until 24 hours after the last episode.
- If they have any rash that may be disease related, or the cause unknown. Check with your child's physician before returning to school.
Regular attendance is essential for good progress in school. We monitor attendance each day to verify when and why children are absent. A student is required by law to attend school. If they miss a school day or part of the day, for legitimate reasons, a parent or guardian must notify the school. A parent or guardian must seek an excused absence, however, the school administrator has the right to accept or deny an application for an excused absence.
- Tardies: A child will be marked tardy if they arrive to school between 7:45a - 8:30a.
- ½ Day Absence: If a child arrives after 8:45 am or leaves before 1:45 pm they will be considered absent for a half day (either AM or PM).
- Early Release: ***Important***
- If a child leaves school after 1:45 p they will be marked as either an excused or unexcused early release.
Three (3) unexcused tardies/early releases will be considered ½ day unexcused absence.
If we do not hear from you by 8:45 am, it is our practice to call your home or work number to determine the whereabouts of your child.
*When bringing your child in late, an adult must sign him/her in at the office.
