School Attendance Policies

Student success in school is directly tied to attendance. Responsibility for attending class lies with the student.


Regular attendance is critical to academic success.
Students absent from class should email a doctor’s note to stating the date(s) of the absence in order for the absence to be excused.  If the student has no doctor’s note, the parent may send an email  stating the date(s) and reason(s) for the absence.  After the 3rd absence a doctor’s note is required for all subsequent absences.


All students arriving at 8:40 a.m. must report to the office for a tardy slip. Tardies may be excused for illness and medical appointments only.  Students attending classes at SHS then traveling to RMS are expected to arive in a timely manner. During the school day, students are considered “on-time” when they are in their seats and ready to work when the tardy bell rings. RMS tardy policy is strictly enforced.
