Attendance Policy

  • Regular attendance and punctuality are important from the beginning of the school year until the last day. Frequent absences, early dismissals and tardies interfere with your child's progress toward learning the necessary basic skills.

    North Carolina law requires that all children enrolled in school must attend regularly. Parents are legally responsible for the school attendance of their children. 

    Missing 10% of the year’s instruction may indeed put a child “at risk” of not mastering grade level competencies. Children who have exceeded 10 days of unexcused absences are in violation of the law and,therefore, the school can take necessary legal action to ensure that all students attend school.​

    Following any absence, a student is required to present written documentation from a parent, guardian or doctor including the date of the absence(s), reason for the absence(s), and the signature of the parent, guardian, or doctor.

    It is the parents’ or guardians’ responsibility to call after-school day care centers if their child is absent from school. Excessive absences could result in a family court referral.
