Absence From School





ABSENCE FROM SCHOOL AND MAKING UP WORK: An absence will result in an automated phone call home from our computer system. If your child has a communicable disease, such as pink eye, strep throat, etc. it is important that you let the office know ASAP.  If you know that your child is going to be out of school ahead of time, such as a doctor, dentist, or an out-of-town event, please send in a note or e-mail.  If your child is absent, it is difficult to make up work because of the design of the curriculum at this level. In order to engage students in learning and be developmentally appropriate, much of the curriculum is activity based, such as literacy stations and math tubs. These activities cannot be made up and instead can be supplemented with an alternative activity when absolutely necessary.  Please do not request work ahead of time when planning ahead for an absence.  It is difficult to know how much of the lesson plans we will accomplish.  I am happy to provide any necessary make-up work upon your child's return to school. More information on this topic can be found in the school-wide handbook. There was an update to the attendance policy....a purple note came home from Mrs. Linn referencing new protocol for attendance.
