Late/Absence Procedures

Tardiness
After 8:25AM students must go to the main office to obtain a "late slip" before entering the classroom, as they will already have been marked absent. NOTE: School committee regulations impose academic consequences for those who are late on a regular basis. Teachers ask that you make every effort to have your child in school on time. Latecomers not only miss out on important instructional time, but disrupt the learning of others.

When your child is tardy, please call the Absent or Tardy Hotline at 617.349.6577 x125. This is a safety issue. An answering machine will pick up. When calling, please identify yourself, your child, teacher, classroom, and reason for absence. Please arrange all medical and dental appointments after school hours whenever possible.
