Pinnacle Peak Preparatory Attendance Policy

Pinnacle Peak Preparatory School Attendance Line: (602) 449-6701.

**Please call in tardies and absences before 8:45 a.m. to avoid receiving a call from the auto-dialer.

The first bell rings at 8:10 a.m. and dismissal is 2:45 p.m.

Early release is 12:00 p.m. for grades 1-6, and 11:45 a.m. for kindergarten.

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 8:45 a.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.

Enrollment

Visit the PVSchools Enrollment page to view our enrollment policies. Please scan and email the completed Registration packet to ksamsill@pvschools.net. Don't forget to include a copy of the child's birth certificate, immunizations and a proof of residency (e.g., utility bill with the address you are registering under).

Enroll Your Child into PVSchools

Homework

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

Tardies

The school bell rings at 8:10 a.m.; classes begin at 8:15 a.m. Instruction commences after morning announcements. 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 8:15 a.m.
