• Important Attendance Information for Ramirez Parents

     To provide an outstanding education for each student we closely monitor the attendance of all our students.  The following is an outline of consequences that accompany tardy and attendance issues.

                                     TARDY POLICY Periods 2 - 7

       It is important for all students to be at school and in class on time.  A tardy occurs when a student is not in his or her seat when the bell stops ringing. Tardiness to class interferes with class procedures, instructional time, and negatively impacts student achievement. Tardies accumulate each trimester and will result in increasing disciplinary consequences.

    Parents contacted, planner signed

    Truancy Policy– Three or more truancies and parents receive a START letter warning that the student will be placed on a SART (attendance) contract.  Students who are truant can participate in attendance recovery through our Academic Saturday School program to make up absent days.  More than ten absences during the school year for any reason including excused absences is considered excessive.  Eighth graders that have more than ten days of absence lose end of the year activities.

     

       Please discuss with your child why being on time is a good habit to form.  Students with who do not have any tardies orabsences are recognized at honor roll assemblies for perfect attendance.
