Absence Procedures

We realize that there will be times when your child is sick and will need to stay home from school. If your child is absent please contact the attendance office. A written excuse from parents should be turned in once the student returns to school.

We also understand there will be times when your student arrives late and/or leaves early due to an appointment, illness, etc. When possible, we ask that you schedule appointments outside of the school day. If your child should arrive to school after 9:15 am, you will need to sign him/her in at the Attendance Office. Mrs. Carrick will send your child to class. We ask that parents not walk their children to class, as this is a disruption to student learning. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Should you need to pick your child up for an appointment, you will need to sign him/her out at the Attendance Office. Remember to bring your ID, as this will be needed to sign your student out. When you arrive, Mrs. Carrick will call your child’s classroom to have him/her sent to meet you. Students will not be sent down to the attendance area to wait for an early pick-up. It is extremely helpful to send a note to school with your child indicating the approximate time that you will be picking him/her up. This assists staff in having your child ready for you, especially if they are at lunch, recess or a special.

There will be NO EARLY DISMISSAL AFTER 2:55. This time of day is very hectic as students are preparing for dismissal. If you arrive after 2:55 to pick up your child you will be asked to wait in the car line. We appreciate your understanding.
