Attendance, Tardiness and Truancy

Absences have an impact on a child’s ability to learn and a teacher’s ability to teach.  In order for each child to benefit from the experience provided, a child’s attendance must be consistent. Excessive absences and tardiness are detrimental to a child’s progress and may result in lower grades due to poor performance, retention, and/or discontinuation in school. 

The responsibility for attendance and/or tardiness lies with parents.  However, for the health and wellbeing of all the other children in the class, if your child is ill at the beginning of the day please keep him or her home until they are well.

Attendance

Tardiness

The school day starts at 7:50 AM.  A second bell rings at 7:55AM to signal the start of morning prayers and daily announcements. Lessons begin promptly at 8:00AM.  A child is considered tardy if he or she is not in the classroom by the second bell at 7:55 AM, or the bell which signals the start of afternoon session for his/her grade.  All children who arrive after roll has been collected from the classroom in the morning must sign in at the school office.

Punctuality is very important. In the morning the children need time at the beginning of the day before formal instruction begins to unpack and prepare for the day. Tardiness can cause tremendous disruption and interruption to both individual children and the whole class. Please make every effort to ensure your child arrives on time.  The continual disruption to the individual child and their classmates of repeated tardiness is cause for discontinuation of a child’s education at Our Lady of the Assumption School.

Truancy – absence and tardiness without a valid excuse

A student who is absent from school more than three (3) days in one school year or is tardy in excess of thirty (30) minutes on each of four (4) days or more in one (1) school year, without a valid excuse, is a truant. 

Parents/guardians will be contacted in any case of suspected truancy. In cases of habitual truancy, when and if all resources at the school level have been exhausted, the principal may notify the local public Child Welfare and Attendance authorities, and the child be subject to dismissal.
