Attendance Counts

Attendance Policy

Our school schedule is as follows:

8:00 a.m. Students may come on campus for breakfast
8:25 a.m. First Bell Rings Students may proceed to their classroom
8:30 a.m. Tardy Bell Rings Students are required to be in their classrooms ready to learn

Students are not allowed on campus before 8:00 a.m. There is no supervision provided at the school until 8:00 a.m. therefore, we cannot ensure the safety of students until 8:00 a.m. If your child needs to be on campus early Extended Day is available.

Students may be excused when the absence is due to personal illness/death in the student's immediate family and to observe recognized holidays of the student's religious faith.  Absences are marked unexcused unless a note is sent to the teacher within one day of the child's return, explaining the reason for the absence.

It is Orange County Public Schools' policy that if a student has accumulated excused absences, it will be necessary for the parent to provide a doctor's excuse for any further absences to be excused. If a doctor's excuse is not provided for the absence, it will be recorded as unexcused. Once a student accumulates 5 unexcused absences within a calendar month or 10 unexcused absences within 90 days, the school must report the student to the school social worker and/or the Early Truancy Intervention teach which consists of the Principal, Social Worker, Teacher and Registrar.
