Regular attendance and punctuality is expected and required. Three consecutive unexcused absences will result in registration drop. Parents have to pay $50/- to re-register the child.
Parents MUST contact administration to excuse any absences due to medical reasons or foreign travel. A student’s full name, grade, dates of absences, and parents’ contact information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or submitted to administration office. All student absences must be reported to the student’s teacher by the parent BEFORE the school day to qualify as an excused absence. If the absence is not reported prior to the school day, it will be an unexcused absence unless excused otherwise excused by the Principal.
Students arriving more than 5 minutes late are considered truant. Truant students MUST obtain a tardy slip before proceeding to the classroom. Every 3 tardies will count as 1 absence.
Students should arrive to school and be in their classrooms by 9:55AM, insha’Allah, for attendance. Students who arrive to school after the class start time, 10:00am, will be tardy. Students will be given a tardy slip upon arrival. Teachers will mark tardies on their attendance forms. Students who are greater than 10 minutes late upon arrival will be CHARGED $10 (per child) -on the spot- and given a tardy slip. Students who have no tardies by the end of the year will be able to participate in a raffle to win goodies (purchased with tardy money).
