Regular on-time attendance is a critical factor in achieving academic success. Students who are frequently absent or tardy miss valuable instruction. Students are responsible to make up any missed work. Students with excessive absences or tardies may be referred to the Alpine District for enforcement. Students who are ill should not attend school. For your child’s safety, please inform the teacher or school when your student is absent. A note from the parent is appreciated. In addition, the school may call to inform you of your child’s absence and to verify his or her safe whereabouts.
During the first three days of an absence your child’s teacher will make contact with the home regarding the absence. Children who arrive within the first five minutes of school should report directly to their classroom. Any student who is absent for ten consecutive days who we are unable to locate will be dropped from the school records.
