Attendance Students may enter the Core hallway at 7:50 and must be in homeroom by 8:00. Students not in homeroom at 8:00 are considered tardy, even if they are in the building. The school day closes with homeroom at 3:00 with dismissal at 3:15. Students not picked up by 3:40 are taken to AfterCare. If your child is going home with someone other than their regular carpool, please send a note.
Please call the office by 7:45. Absent work can be picked up between 3:15 and 7:00pm or sent home with another student. Students have one day for each absent day to complete missing work. Test or quiz make-up will occur on the day the student returns Long-term absences can greatly affect student progress. If an absence is planned, please inform me and Mrs. Karl at least one week prior and we will try to make arrangements for work to be given ahead of time. Try to schedule appointments before or after school or during lunch (12:00-12:45) Absences
