Attendance: Students are expected to attend school regularly.  Any time the student is absent, he/she is expected to bring in a note stating the reason for the absence.  Any absence not accompanied by an excuse will be considered unexcused.  Students arriving after 9:00 AM will be considered tardy.  Parents planning to remove their child from school for a pre-planned trip should complete an Educational Trip Form at least one week prior to the scheduled trip.  All school work missed during the trip must be made up.

Visitors: All visitors are expected to enter through the office, sign in, and wear a badge while in the building.  In order to avoid classroom interruptions, parents are requested to leave messages and materials in the office.  Parents picking up students for appointments prior to 3:30 PM dismissal need to come to the office and sign the student out.  Students will be called to the office and dismissed from there.  These procedures are in place to assure a secure environment for the students.
