Parents should call the office between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. to report a student absence.  Unreported/Unsubstantiated attendance events will be recorded as an unexcused absence.  To help assure student safety, the school's automated calling system will attempt to contact a parent at home or work if a call is not received regarding an absence.  Excessive absences can affect achievement and result in a referral to appropriate Central Office personal.

Attendance is monitored closely and recognized at three levels - Perfect, Superior, and Faithful.  To qualify for "Perfect" attendance, the student cannot miss any time during the entire school year, including being late or tardy.  Students with "Perfect" attendance are eligible to receive 2 free ROYALS TICKETS!
