Attendance Procedures:

  1. Attendance is taken twice a day. We record attendance by half days.
  2. Students are required to be in their classrooms at designated times. If a student comes to school within the first hour of the designated time, then that student is tardy. If the student arrives more than an hour after the appointed time, the student will have a 1/2 day absence.
  3. Attendance of 2 hours or less will result in a full day's absence.
