Attendance and Tardies

Regular attendance is an important part of academic success. To ensure that concepts and skills are consistently learned, regular attendance is a must. Students should not be allowed to stay home from school unless they are ill. All students are required by Utah State Law to attend school regularly. Please call the school in the morning if your child will not be attending school that day.

Then, following an absence, a written excuse should be included in the student planner. Children need to arrive at school on time! A warning bell rings at 8:38 a.m. A tardy bell rings at 8:40 a.m. Classes begin promptly at 8:40. The beginning of the school day sets the learning climate. If students are tardy, this affects their academic performance and citizenship.
