Attendance Policy

ATA Stock Pics _048When a child is absent or tardy from school, the parent or guardian should send a note to the school explaining the reason for the absence upon the child’s return to school. All notes must include: the date of the note, the name of the child, the date of the absence(s) or tardy, the specific reason for the absence(s) or tardy and the parent’s signature.

Students may be retained for excessive absences from school throughout the year. They cannot learn the material if they are not in the classroom.
