ATTENDANCE: Students should attend daily unless ill or an emergency arises. Excessive absences or tardies may result in legal action. (Utah’s Compulsory Attendance Law mandates attendance) A successful school experience is the responsibility of the child, the parents, and the school. There is a correlation between your child’s progress, both academic and social, and his or her participation at school. If a student is ill or an emergency arises, parents should call the school to report the absence.
