• Students Must Attend School Every Day - It's The Law!

    This document provides details regarding compulsory attendance laws, including reasons an absence can be excused. For an absence to be excused for one of the reasons listed, parents need to provide the office (not the teacher) with written documentation of the absence within 72 hours of the child's return to school. Please note that attendance laws apply to LOSIT's the same as they do for full day absences.

  • Loss of Significant Instructional Time

    Parents should be aware that when students miss 15 minutes or more of the instructional time during the school day, this constitutes a significant loss of instructional time, or LOSIT. These are also defined as "parts of days." Parents of elementary students with multiple LOSIT's can receive district attendance letters, the same as those with multiple unverified or unexcused absences. LOSIT's are documented when a student is tardy, or when they are taken out of school before the end of the day at 2:50 pm. When parents take students out of school for doctor's appointments, it is important that documentation is provided to the office when returning to school. Students are expected to be in their classrooms at 7:50 am to not be counted tardy.

  • Was Your Child Absent?

    Guidelines for parents in documenting absences. Absent notes should include the date(s) of the absence, the name of the child, the reason for the absence, and a parent signature. When multiple children from one family are absent, parents should turn in a separate note for each child.
