Additional Information

Attendance is important in Pre-K!  The first step in establishing good school habits is regular school attendance, so your child must be at school unless he/she is ill.  A written excuse will be required for all absences.  Please send a note with your child when he/she returns to school after being out for any reason.  If you take your child to the doctor, please ask the doctor or nurse to write an excuse.  Pre-K guidelines require children who do not attend class or are late for an excessive number of days without a medical or other reasonable explanation to be removed from the roster.
