TARDIES

The student day begins promptly at 7:50 a.m. Children who are not in their classroom by 8:00 a.m. must report to the office to get a tardy slip.

ABSENCES

A written excuse, including date, reason for absence, and parent or guardian signature is required by State Law for each absence. Please be sure the written excuse is on a sheet of paper and not written in the planner. If the student will be absent more than three (3) days or for an extended period of time, send a note to our school office. Students may be excused when the absence is due to personal illness, serious illness/death in the student’s immediate family, and to observe recognized holidays of the student’s religious faith. All other absences are unexcused unless the activity is school sponsored or pre-approved by the principal.

It is school policy that if a student has accumulated 10 excused absences, it will be necessary for the parent to provide a doctor’s excuse for any further absences to be excused. If a doctor’s excuse is not provided for the absence, it will be recorded as unexcused. Once a student accumulates 5 unexcused absences within a calendar month or 10 unexcused absences within 90 days, the school is obligated to take further action as specified in the Orange County Public Schools attendance policy and procedures manual.
