    Attendance and Tardy Policy Information

    Regular school attendance is critical​ for student success.  The loss of 10 minutes of academic instructional time each day due to being tardy or checked out of school early multiplied by 180 school days equals 30 hours of lost instruction each school year.  Please make every effort for your child to be in school every day. 

    Early check-outs should be limited to emergencies to limit the loss of student academic instructional time.  Student dismissal time is 3:20 PM each day and 02:20 PM on Early Release days.

     Tardies

    The first bell rings at 8:00 AM for students to proceed to class.  The tardy bell rings at 8:10 AM.  All students not in the classroom at 8:10 AM will be marked "TARDY" and will need a Tardy Pass before proceeding to class.  Please be aware that according to District Attendance Policies, 5 tardies equal 1 unexcused absence.

    The office staff and district support personnel monitor school attendance, tardies and check outs, and will contact you if there is a concern.

    IF YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE IN THE WAY YOUR CHILDREN GET HOME FROM SCHOOL, PLEASE NOTIFY THE FRONT OFFICE BEFORE 1:00 EACH DAY.

    ParentPortal

    Please contact  Silvia Denova (ext. 22304) in the front office for login information to access the Parent Portal.  Parent Portal is a medium for parents to monitor student attendance, assignment completion, and grades, as well as, schedule conferences and communicate with your child's teacher. 

    Free and Reduced Lunch 

    Students need healthy meals to learn.  Good nutrition is essential for academic success.  Your children may qualify for free or reduced lunch if your family income falls within federal guidelines.  Please stop in the front office for a Free / Reduced Meal Application, or see the link at  right to complete the form online.
