Attendance

Be a SUPER “HERO” with your attendance.

H.E.R.O- HERE, EVERYDAY, READY, ON-TIME

 

Attendance Information:

Class begins at 07:40 a.m.  Please have your student to school 10-15 minutes prior to 07:40 so that your child may have time to eat breakfast and arrive to their classroom on time.

We appreciate a parent note, but it does not excuse an absence from school.

3 Ways to excuse an absence:

1. Dr. Note

2. Death in the family

3. Court appearance for child.

Parents you have 3 business days to turn in the proper documentation for your student’s absence to be excused in the system.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding student attendance/tardies you may contact Ms. Preston @ (318) 872-1772, ext. 30 or email: candice.preston@desotopsb.com
