Absent, Late, or Leaving Early
If your child is going to be absent, you must contact the school as soon as possible (a text is fine) or your child will be marked as truant and a truancy officer may be sent to the home. Your child will be marked as truant on the school roll if we do not hear from you. If your child is late to school, please ensure that they sign in at the office and collect a Late Pass, otherwise they will be marked as absent. If you are picking up your child early from school, please sign your child out at the office and collect an Early Release Pass. Your child will not be allowed to leave their classroom without a pass.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school. We are always happy to help!
