Attendance

Student Attendance

Student’s grades and attendance go hand-in-hand. Please remember that excessive absences lead to failure in the classroom. Since regular attendance is essential for a child’s success in school, absences shall be excused only for illness, bereavement, family emergencies, and observance of major religious holidays of the family’s faith.

In the event a student is absent, please notify the school office by 9:00 a.m. of the day the student is absent and give a reason for the absence.  The school office number is 633-4101, ext. 200.  You may call before or after office hours and leave a message.  If a parent does not have access to a phone, it will be necessary to send a note to school stating the reason for the absence.  State law requires that we have parent documentation for all absences.

Students who have excessive absences will be referred to the Yavapai County Court system for the court’s intervention.

Students who are absent 10 days or more during a semester may be subject to retention in their current grade level.

Student Sign Out

Students leaving the campus for any reason during the day must be signed out in the school office by the parent or guardian.  Students cannot leave the school grounds without being checked out at the office.

Tardies

The first bell rings at 7:55 and School begins at 8:00.  Students arriving at school after 8:00 need to go by the office and pick up a tardy slip on their way into school to be admitted to class. They need to bring a written excuse from home or their parent or guardian should call the school office.
