The teachers and administration would like to partner with families to promote positive attendance habits that prioritize school attendance. Regular attendance and punctuality at school is essential to ongoing academic success.

There are significant amounts of direct instruction provided by teachers each day along with valuable learning activities which don't necessarily have an associated printed assignment that can be made up at home. While our teachers are willing to provide missed work, it should be noted that completing the missed work, doesn't necessarily mean that the students are all caught up on the learning that took place that day.

With that in mind, we encourage you to continue to call the office if your child is sick or has another excused reason to miss school. Please seek to plan family vacations around natural school breaks (summer, fall, winter, spring) and holidays.  We appreciate the partnership we have with parents as we educate our students.

Information to keep in mind:

  • For safety reasons, please do not send students to school early. The first bell rings at 8:55 a.m. School begins at 9:00 a.m. Students should arrive at school as close to 8:55 a.m. as possible.
  • If your student is resistant to coming to school, please notify the teacher or administration so we can develop an intervention plan to promote positive attendance (i.e. incentives, emotional support, conference with student, counseling support, etc.)
  • Please notify the office each time your child needs to miss school 801-567-8910.
  • If attendance becomes a concern, the office will contact families to seek ways to improve (letter correspondence, phone calls, meetings, etc.).
  • Parents/guardians have a legal obligation to make sure their school age student is enrolled and attending school on a regular basis. Utah State Code indicates, "The parent of a school-aged child shall meet with school authorities to discuss the school-aged child's school attendance problems and cooperate with the school in securing regular attendance by the child" 53G-6-202).
  • If your child has 10 consecutive days of unexcused absences without notification from you, your child will be withdrawn from school in accordance with Utah Administrative code (R277-419).
  • Educational Leave Guidelines: District policy allows for students to be excused for up to 10 days for travel/vacation each year, thought families are still highly encouraged to vacation during summer, fall, winter, and spring breaks. The form for educational leave is available in the office.
