 ATTENDANCE

Good attendance is very important.

Excessive absences or tardiness will affect your child's learning.

 It is a Connecticut State Law that a student that has excessive absences comes under the truancy policy and must be reported to the proper authorities. School personnel are required to become involved with the family if attendance is poor. A student with twenty absences in a school year is classified as a habitual truant.

If your child must be absent, please send a note explaining why. This is required. Six or more unexcused absences will result in the child failing for that marking period!

ALSO, students should not be taken out of class early unless absolutely necessary and then parents are to sign their child out in the office.

Parents should avoid interrupting class at the end of the day.

Please wait outside for your child. Siblings are not permitted upstairs.

HOMEWORK POLICY

The purpose of homework is as follows: -

  • to give increased practice in particular skills -
  • to make up work lost because of absence -
