    School attendance is ultimately the responsibility of the student and his/her family. Students should remain out of school only when absolutely necessary, as much of the classroom activity cannot be made up: the benefit of lectures, discussions and participation is forever lost to those who are absent. It must be emphasized that regular, attendance is the key to much of the success a student may gain from his/her school program.

    Please be advised of the following procedures and absence/tardy information.

    ATTENDANCE:

    When a child is absent from school, the parent/guardian is required to call the attendance line (602-449-6701) before 8:45a.m. on the day of the absence. Failure to report a child’s absence will constitute an unexcused absence or truancy. It is for your child’s protection that this policy is in place and we appreciate parental cooperation and support. It is a matter of Governing Board Policy that a student may be retained for excessive absences that affect his/her academic progress.

    HOMEWORK:

    Homework requested for a student absent from school must be done by 10:00a.m. for same day 2:45p.m. pickup.

    TARDIES:

    The school bell rings at 8:10a.m. – classes begin at 8:15a.m. Instruction commences after morning announcement. It is less disruptive to the class if everyone is present when the teachers begin direction for the day. A student is tardy if they aren’t in their classroom at 8:15a.m.
