Regular attendance is important to your child’s success in school. If your child must be absent, please send a note stating the reason for the absence. In case of illness, please be specific. If your child has been absent three days, please call the school to let us know the child’s condition. If the illness is five or more days, the child must be readmitted through the office with a physician’s return to school order. We need a physician’s note for injuries with stitches, surgery, hospitalization, casts, splints, major head injuries, or any long, serious illness. Students with casts will not be allowed on the playground during recess, lunch or physical education periods.
