Daily Procedures

Regular face-to-face start time is  9:10 a.m. The "first bell" signals teachers to pick up their classes and move to the classroom. The front gate is closed at 9:15 a.m., and the tardy gate is opened. Students arriving after the gate is closed are issued a tardy slip to take to class.

Teachers are responsible for taking daily attendance on Zangle by 9:30 a.m. Calls are made on unexcused absences later in the day by the office.

Excessive absences or tardies result first in teacher contact, and then are brought to the school counselor to begin follow-up. The district has determined that five absences per month are excessive. The school counselor or school nurse will make personal contact with families to resolve excessive absences or tardies. Formal letters are sent to parents regarding excessive absences and tardies.
