Attendance Policy

Attendance & Participation

Attendance in school and participation in class whether in person or virtually are very important parts of academic achievement and in the learning process. The State of North Carolina requires that every child in the State between the ages of 7 (or younger if enrolled) and 16 attend school.  Regular attendance by every student is mandatory.  Parents and legal guardians are responsible for ensuring that students attend school daily.


Students are expected to report to school or login virtually to all classes on time.  A student shall be seated at his/her desk at the time appointed or the student will be recorded as tardy/absent for that particular class.  All students who are late should be signed in by the parent and obtain a tardy slip. 


Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, students must have a temperature check prior to going to class. 


It is just as important that students be on time for school as it is being present.  When a student is late for school, they are missing valuable instructional time.  The same reasons are excused for being tardy to school as for being absent. 


Students must be in attendance until 11:30 a.m. in order to be counted present.
