Absences

School Tardiness Policy

Our school doors open at 8:40 a.m. and classes begin at 8:50 a.m. It is important for your child to arrive on time. Regular attendance and promptness are essential to maintaining expected academic growth.

Morning meetings and class routines that take place in all of our classrooms are particularly important to set the tone and structure of the school day. Your child's involvement in this routine will help him or her feel included in the daily classroom structure.

Late arrivals disrupt these activities and lessons in progress, delay critical interactions with peers and compromise our children's participation in school-wide community-building activities. It is therefore vital that your child arrive on time.

Please know that we are willing to work with you to develop morning routines which work for your family. This is one more step toward building our community.
