    One of the most important prerequisites for success in school is regular attendance.  Students are EXPECTED to be in school every day and on time unless they are sick; there is a family emergency or observance of a religious holiday.

    Perfect attendance means that students arrived on time (before the bell rings), did not leave early (before 2:45 p.m.) and were in attendance each day school was in session for the given time period.  Students are included on the end-of-the-year Perfect Attendance Banner based on this criteria.

    Students who arrive after the 8:00 tardy bell MUST report to the office  before going to class, otherwise, they will be counted absent.
