Attendance Policy

Attendance Policy as stated in the Enterprise Charter School Family Handbook

Based upon our School’s education and community needs, values and priorities, the school has determined that absences, tardiness and early departures will be considered excused or unexcused according to the following standards.


Excused

An absence, tardiness or early departure may be excused if due to personal illness, illness or death in the family, impassable roads due to inclement weather, religious observance and education, quarantine, required court appearances, incarceration, approved field trip, "Student to Work" Day, suspension (up to 3 days), attendance at health clinics, approved college visits, approved cooperative work programs, military obligations or other such reasons as may be approved by the Board of Trustees.


Unexcused

Any absence that is not described in the previous (Excused) paragraph. [e.g., family vacation, babysitting, no transportation, lack of proper clothing, oversleeping.]


Illness / Excuses / Tardiness (late)

If a child is going to be absent, their absence should be called into the office at 855-2114.  If you get the voicemail, please leave the child’s name, classroom, and reason for absence on the recording.  If we do not receive a call, school personnel will attempt to contact the parent/guardian to verify the absence.

If you know your child will be tardy due to a medical appointment, or other reason, please send in a note to the classroom teacher.

When a child is absent or tardy, it is required for them to return with a written excuse.  Excuses should include the date of absence or tardiness, reasons for the absence or tardiness, and be signed by a parent or legal guardian. Absences with no written excuse will be considered unexcused.
