2016-2017 Goal: 97% student and staff attendance rate.
Students need to attend school every day and arrive before 7:25 AM.
All absences require a note from the parent/guardian, doctor or dentist WITHIN THREE SCHOOL DAYS FROM THE DATE OF THE ABSENCE explaining the absence.
The note must contain the following information:
PARENT’S FULL NAME, PHONE NUMBER, DATE(S) OF ABSENCE(S), and the REASON FOR THE ABSENCE and SIGNATURE. This request is a requirement of South Carolina state law.
Without the note, the absence is unexcused.
Irregular attendance/tardiness WILL result in a referral to the CCSD truant officer, the appropriate outside child protection agency and/or possible retention. It is very important that ALL students be in attendance regularly so that learning may occur.
