As a reminder, our hours are:
- School Hours: 8:15 a.m. - 2:45 p.m.
- Office Hours: 8 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Children who arrive at school after 8:15 a.m. must report to the office for a tardy slip. Parents of children who are consistently late to school will be held accountable for their child's attendance. Our school social worker will investigate excessive tardiness or absenteeism as defined by state and local laws as well as school district policies for attendance.
If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, parents must call the attendance line 363-9600 and report the absence by 9:15 a.m. If we do not receive a call the day of the absence by 9:15 a.m., per Aliana’s Law, a call will be made to the home to verify the absence. This policy is for your child's safety. Please help us minimize unnecessary phone calls by letting us know of absences. Chronic absenteeism will be investigated by the school social worker at the discretion of the principal. Parents who fail to improve a child's poor attendance may be cited in court and a judge will assign corrective measures. Any child who is absent from school is not permitted to attend any afterschool event such as a dance, try-out or enrichment class.
Montessori students may arrive at school as early as 7:45 a.m. Our teachers try to make the most of every minute children are in school. Please be sure that your child is in the class by the 8:15 a.m. start time. Chronic tardiness will also be investigated by the school social worker.
To report an absent child, call the school office or email us using this Absence Reporting Form.
