Attendance

Red Hill Elementary School pays close attention to a student’s attendance. Students who are chronically late or excessively absent will be referred to the Counselor and/or Administrator for follow up action with parents.

Family vacations should be scheduled during school breaks to minimize absence from class.
 
LATE/TARDY
A child entering class after 7:55 a.m. is considered late and will be marked as such on the attendance record.

7:55 am – 8:15 am Student goes directly to his/her class. TEACHER marks him/her late.

After 8:15 am Parent/Guardian & Student MUST report to the office to sign in for a LATE PASS.

If a child is often late, counselor will be notified and parent will be contacted.

ABSENCES
