Attendance daily is an important part of a student’s education. Frequent absences can often lead to gaps in their knowledge, which puts students at a disadvantage. However, if they are sick, keep them home! Students must be free from a vomiting or fever episode for 24 hours before returning to school. Be sure to call the office to let them know if your child will be out! If a student will be out for more than 5 days: please request an Independent Study at the office 2 weeks in advance.
Please make sure that your child knows their lunch number. Students will need to use the number when buying lunch, while in the computer lab and taking quizzes on Accelerated Reader. Student Lunch is $2.25 You can pay for lunch in advance on myschoolbucks.com. It is advised to place some money on the account in case of emergency.
