Attendance at School

It is our goal that every child have opportunity to receive a proper education and find success in school.  In order to do this, your child must have regular attendance. 

Reporting Your Student Absent

Due to Illness
If your child is ill, please call the Attendance Line at 869-2100.  There is an answering machine available to leave messages if a call is placed outside regularly scheduled office hours. 

Due to Doctor/Dentist/Orthodontist Appointments
We would like to encourage you to schedule your child’s appointments during non-school times so they don’t miss out on important instructional time in the classroom.  If, however, this is not possible, please call the Attendance Line at 869-2100.  Upon return to school, please have your student bring in a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc.

Due to Necessities Other Than Illness
Independent Study Contracts are available for students who may be absent for 5-20 (five to twenty) days due to necessities other than illness, surgery, etc.  For example,
out-of-town on vacation.  

Call the office at (209) 869-2100 to find out if your student qualifies for an Independent Study and, if, so, complete the paperwork and return it to the office at least 5 (five) das prior to the first day of the absence.  

Independent Study Contracts must be approved by the classroom teacher and the principal.  All work must be completed by the child and turned in to the teacher on the first day the student returns to school.  No partial credit will be given.  Incomplete work will result in unexcused absences.  ndependent Study Contracts are not available at the beginning or the end of the school year.
