Attendance Policy

Parents or guardians of children are responsible for their regular attendance.

If a child is to be absent, parents must call the school office at (203) 869-1685 before 9:00 a.m. You must call and inform the school each day your child will be absent from school. A student who has four unexcused absences in one month or ten unexcused absences in one year is considered truant.

An important part of good attendance is arriving to school on time and remaining for the full day. Late arrivals and early dismissals are disruptive to learning. Please remember that instruction begins promptly at 8:15am and ends at 2:45pm. Late arrivals must receive a late pass before reporting to class.

If there are any changes in dismissal you must send a note to the classroom teacher in the morning. If you need to make a change please call the office before 1:00PM.
