Attendance

Regular school attendance is a major criterion in order for students to achieve their maximum potential. Absences result in the loss of meaningful school experiences. Poor attendance habits formed in early adult life are difficult to overcome later on. All students are expected to be in regular attendance. If it is necessary for a student to be absent from school, the parent/guardian must telephone the school office at 785-5602 by 8:30 a.m. If that is not possible, a note from parent/guardian stating the reason for the absence is to be presented to the principal’s office upon return to school. Our automated calling system will call any student who is marked with an “A” for the day in our school information system. An “A” refers to an absence without any parent communication that day.

Students who miss three (3) consecutive days may request their assignments through the Attendance Office, by calling 785-5602 by 9:00 a.m. Students are required to get assignments prior to leaving for any school-approved absences (sports, band, field trips, etc.). Students are responsible for being prepared for class the day they return.

The Board of Education will comply with the compulsory school laws for attendance as specified by the State of Missouri.
