Teachers take attendance daily. A parent/guardian note presented to the teacher is required for absence, lateness, and early dismissal. If an absence is planned, it is possible to obtain schoolwork in advance with a week's notice to the child's teacher. Please refer to Trips for an excused absence for an educational trip. For tardiness, the child should be escorted to the office by an adult and submit a note upon his/her late arrival to the classroom teacher. In the case of an early dismissal, the child should present a note to the teacher first thing in the morning. When the child arrives late or leaves early, the parent/guardian must bring him/her into the school office and sign him/her in or out.
