School attendance is the combined responsibility of the student, the parents and the school.  A student can readily make up missed assignments, but missed time in the classroom cannot be replaced.  Therefore, for a student to realize their full learning potential, daily class attendance is important.  A full description of attendance practices can be found in the Roosevelt Elementary Student Handbook.  The following guidelines regarding tardies and absences have been set:

  • Tardy - Any student who arrives at school after the 8:20 bell in the morning
  • Unexcused tardy - Students coming late to school without a note or parent contact.  Excessive unexcused tardies will result in disciplinary action.
  • Morning absence - Students coming after 8:45 AM are considered absent for the A.M.
  • Afternoon absence - Students leaving before 2:45 p.m. are considered absent for the P.M.
