Please call the school by 8:30 a.m. if your child is not going to attend school with the reason for his/her absence.  If your child has a doctor’s appointment, please be sure to get a doctor’s excuse for his/her absence as well. 

In order for your child to receive an excellent attendance award at the end of the school year, a doctor’s excuse is required to excuse the absence.  Perfect attendance is awarded at the end of the school year for students who have not missed any day, left early, or come late to school for the whole year.
