We appreciate our scholars and parents for helping to get this year off to a great start! We have a wonderful faculty that is dedicated to working with your child. It is our goal to provide the best education possible. For this to happen, you must have a strong relationship with your child’s teacher. A positive connection between home and school is always key to a successful year!
Attendance is crucial for learning. Instruction, whether it is virtual or face-to-face is critical to every child’s success. South Carolina State Law requires a student under the age of seventeen to attend school regularly. When a student has three consecutive or five nonconsecutive unexcused absences, the state has determined that the child is truant. The law requires the school to schedule a conference with the parent to develop an Attendance Intervention Plan.
In addition, tardiness prevents a student from beginning the day on a good note. Instruction begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. Students who come to school late miss valuable learning. Remember, you may drop your child off at school as early as 7:15 a.m. If you have questions about attendance, please feel free to contact me or Kristie Gault.
