• Student Attendance Policy

    Attendance – Oregon law requires parents/guardians to see that children between the ages of 7 and 18 years attend school regularly. It is the legal responsibility of the parent to have their children in school, and ensure the student attends school regularly and in a timely manner (Reference: ORS 339.010-339.020). This responsibility lies with the student as well.

    Students are expected to attend school and classes daily and on time. The parent/guardian may notify school staff of absences and/tardies by an email, phone call, sending a note and/or leaving a voicemail.

    Parents/guardians are encouraged to contact the school and classroom teachers directly if there is a concern about absenteeism. When a student’s attendance is so erratic that he or she is not benefiting from the educational program, the Principal or designee will notify the student and parent/guardian of appropriate alternative programs. State law requires schools to withdraw students who are absent ten (10) consecutive school days for any reason.
