Attendance Policy

Absences
Parents of elementary school children are asked to call the Agnes Gray School if your child will be absent or late to school.  Students are considered tardy if the arrive after 8:45AM.  You may call the school at 674-2332 after 8:00AM.
 
When a student shows signs of illness, the parent will be notified and the student will be excused from school.  Please stop at the office in the Agnes Gray School to sign your child in or out of school if it is during school hours.  This helps us know who has your child and the exact time for attendance records.
 
Vacations: If you are planning on taking a vacation on days other than the scheduled ones on the school calendar, you must contact Mrs. Clarke, in writing or in person, so the school knows. It is nice that you let your student's teacher know, but Mrs. Clarke has to approve the time away in order for it to be an excused absence. You can reach her at school by calling 674-2332. Thank you for following the school policy.
We encourage parents to take vacations during the scheduled ones on the school calendar. Days taken while instruction is going on can not be made up easily. Teachers are teaching new concepts to students and your student will miss the classroom discussions on these concepts.
