Attendance Guidelines for 2015-2016
School begins at 8:00 am and dismisses at 2:45 pm.
Attendance letters will be sent home when the child has:
10 unexcused tardies
10 unexcused early dismissals
3 days unexcused absences
5 days unexcused absences
10 days unexcused absences
Intervention Plans will be required after you receive a letter for 10 unexcused absences. This requires parents coming in for a conference with administration. If attendance does not improve after an intervention plan meeting, you will be reported to the Anderson County Board of Education.
Any absences, tardies, or early dismissals require an excuse.
Vacations are not an excused absence.
Any excuses (parent note, medical excuse, etc.) must be turned in as soon as possible. Any excuses turned in after 2 weeks do not have to be accepted.
Only 3 parent notes are acceptable per school year.
A parent signature is required in the office for all students that arrive late.
Students arriving late due to bus schedules will not be counted tardy and will be allowed to eat breakfast.
Let's work together to create a positive school year for your child.
