Attendance Policy

When school is in session, all students are expected to be in school. Students should be in school on a regular basis, keeping absences to a minimum. Illness, injury, doctor appointments, and family emergencies are legitimate excused absences. All other activities should be scheduled outside of school hours or during normal holiday and vacation times.

Before and after school

Students are asked not to arrive before 8:15 a.m. (8:30 a.m. at Evergreen Christian School) nor remain after 3:30 p.m.; teachers are working and may not be in the classroom. Please notify the teacher and the school office in advance if you plan to drop off your child early or pick them up late.

What to do when your child is sick

If your child is sick, please notify the attendance coordinator (see numbers below) prior to 8:30 a.m.

What to do if your child has a doctor or dentist appointment

If your child will miss part of a day due to an appointment, please send a note to your child’s teacher or call the school office. Advance notice is very much appreciated.

Vacations and Extended Absences

Vacations and other non-emergency extended absences require an Excused Absence Form. This form should be filled out well in advance of the planned absence and returned to the school office. A note to your child’s teacher is appreciated as well.
