Attendance

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

Call the Crossroads Office at 869-2100


Absent Due to Illness

If your child is ill with a fever, vomiting/diarrhea, or has an infection requiring antibiotics, please call the Attendance Line at 869-2100. Children should be 24 hours symptom free before returning to school. For students out ill for 3 or more consecutive days, it is recommended that the parent have a note from the doctor clearing the student to return to school and to excuse the absences.

Absent Due to Doctor/Dentist/Orthodontist Appointments

We would like to encourage you to schedule your child’s appointments during non-school times so students don’t miss out on important instructional time with their teachers 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., to excuse the absence.

Absent Due to Family Vacations/Events

We would like to encourage you to schedule your family vacations/events during non-school times so students don’t miss out on important instructional time with their teachers in the classroom. If, however, this is not possible, please call the Attendance Line at 869-2100. These absences are considered unexcused. If your family vacation/events will cause your student to be out for 5 or more days, please call the office to find out if you student qualifies for an Independent Study Contract.


"If you miss school, you miss out."
