Jennie Moore Elementary
Attendance Policy


Students are encouraged to attend school every day and to be on time. Students are required to bring a handwritten or doctor's note for every absence from school. The notes must state the date(s), the reason for the absence, the student's first and last name, the name of the homeroom teacher, and the note must be signed by a parent/guardian. Notes are to be turned in to the office. Emails are not accepted.  


A student must be in class until 11:00 AM in order to receive credit for attendance.  If the student arrives at school by 11:00 AM and remains for the remainder of the day, the student will receive credit for attendance for the day.


Absences in excess of ten days per year will not be considered excused with a parent/guardian note unless they are accompanied by official medical or legal documentation.
