Attendance Policy

School Attendance

Research has revealed that students who are late or miss school regularly find it difficult to be successful in any of their endeavors. Absences and tardies are recorded electronically. If you have any questions regarding attendance, please call Mrs. Ackard at 270-6902


Call 270-6902 . Parents are to call the school when a student is absent.

Upon return, the student must bring a note from their parent if the parent did not call the office (specifying the reason and dates for the absence) to the front office before 8:10AM.
