In order to protect the learning of your child and conform with Massachusetts general law, it is important that your child is here:
- On Time
- All Day
- Every Day
The school is held accountable for attendance. Therefore, we ask that you let your child remain in school each day and either ride the bus home, follow the afternoon car pick up procedure, or attend the day care program.
Should it become necessary on a rare occasion to dismiss your child early from school, we ask that you:
- Send a note to the teacher at least 24hours in advance
- Sign the child out at the front desk no later than 3:05 p.m.
Overuse of this process will be recorded with attendance when reporting to the state.
