Attendance Matters

It is a fact that good attendance contributes to successful students. This year we have some very important new attendance procedures of which parents and students should be aware. 

  • Good Attendance is missing 9 or fewer days per year (an average of one absence per month).
  • After a student has accumulated 7 absences, third party documentation, such as a doctor or dentist note, is required to excuse the absence. Please be in the habit of getting a note for any appointment, even before you hit that threshold of 7 absences.
  • We will contact you for a conference if  your child has 3 unexcused absences or 5 absences in a month (excused or unexcused). 
  • Chronic absenteeism is more than 18 absences in a school year.

We want to encourage all of our James Sales Jaguars to be at school ON TIME, EVERYDAY, ALL DAY,and ready to learn!
