ABSENCES AND TRUANCY
Absences and Truancy
Parents please remember any pupil who is absent from school without valid excuse three full days is a truant and shall be reported to the attendance supervisor and receive a truancy letter. A second letter will be sent after five unexcused absences and after 10 unexcused absences a SARB (School Attendance Review Board) meeting will be set up the district office.
Students are tardy at the 8:02 bell; please make sure your pupil is here before that time. Any student tardy will receive a warning call home and then a half hour detention for every tardy after that call. If you find that traffic backup on Kehoe is slowing punctual arrival, please consider parking your car 2-3 blocks away and walk you student into the school. It's faster! It's healthier!
Please check School Loop to keep track of current grades and zeros for your pupils.
