• Attendance                                    Attendance/Absences

    Regular and timely attendance will support your child’s preschool experience.    If your child will be absent, please call the school office no later than one hour after classes begin on the day of an absence.  If you do not call the office, the absence is considered unexcused. Because space is limited, It is also important to remember that ten (10) unexcused absences from school may result in your child’s dismissal from this program.

    If your child will be out because of illness, it is our health care department and school district’s requirement that you not allow them to return to school until they are fever/ vomit/diarrhea-free for 24 hours without the use of medication.

    It is important that children are in class the entire class time.  Children who arrive late or leave  early  miss out  on  important  parts  of  the  day  and  then  lack  continuity  in  their preschool time.  We understand that children occasionally need to be late or leave early, but please make every effort to assure your child is in attendance.   When asking for a child to be released from school, the parent should first go to the school secretary rather than going directly to the classroom.  When a child is late to school or returns after an appointment, the parent must sign the child in with the school secretary.
