As a reminder, our hours are:
- School Hours: 7:45 a.m. - 2:15 p.m.
- Office Hours: 7:15 a.m. - 3:15 p.m.
Each student will be given a ten minute grace period to arrive at school. Students who arrive at school after 7:55 a.m. must report to the Attendance Coordinator for a tardy slip. Students will not be permitted into the classroom without a tardy slip. Please note, students are considered late if they report to school after 7:45 a.m.
To report an absent child, call the school office or email us using this Absence Reporting Form.
Children are expected to attend school each day. If your child is ill or an emergency occurs, please contact the main office that school day at (513) 363-1000. Also, please send a note when the child returns to class.
If your child has a medical condition that may cause him/her to miss school days, please provide the school with medical documentation.
If chronic unexcused absences become an issue, then the following steps will occur:
- Two unexcused absences — The student will be assigned detention and a warning letter will be mailed to the parents.
- Three unexcused absences — The student will be assigned to an in-school suspension and a letter will be sent home to the parent.
- Four unexcused absences — A parent-conference will be held.
- Five unexcused absences — Court referral will be made.
Any student that has chronic unexcused tardies/early dismissals by parent request/absences equals up to five unexcused absences. A court referral will be made to the Hamilton Country Juvenile Court.
Leaving Early Procedures
Students are scheduled to be in school from 7:45 a.m. - 2:15 p.m. each day. Students leaving school disrupt the educational process of not only the student being pulled out but the class itself. Please refrain from pulling students out, but if it has to happen please give the school prior notice.
A student being pulled out of class early to leave school more than twice a week or four times per month without appropriate documentation, such as medical/dental or mental health appointment or a death in the family, is considered unexcused. Please be advised three unexcused early dismissal requests by a parent or guardian equals one absent day.
