School attendance is an important key to the academic achievement of your child. Every effort should be made to ensure students are consistently at school and on time. In the event that students arrive after the tardy bell, they need to report to the office for a tardy pass and to be counted for lunch count if they are buying. This procedure places emphasis on student responsibility, promptness to school (reducing unnecessary interruptions in the classroom), and assists the kitchen staff in planning for lunch preparations.
