The elementary school attendance policy adopted by our School Board adheres to North Carolina state laws pertaining to student attendance.

Students must be in attendance for more than half a day (11:15 a.m.) to be counted present for the day.  Upon returning to school from an absence students must bring a parent note or doctor's statement giving the reason for the absence. Undocumented absences and absences which do not comply with state law as  "excused" will be coded  "unexcused." Family vacations are not excused. When  they are limited in length and the student has not had excessive absences prior, the teacher will allow the child to make up work. Prior notice is required. 

Students who arrive at school after 8:00 a.m. are tardy and must report to the office for a late pass.
