Students are dismissed from the gymnasium to their classrooms at 8:10. Students must be in their classroom by 8:20 a.m.
Regular attendance is a significant student responsibility at all grade levels. Regular attendance means that the academic learning process is not interrupted, and students benefit from participation and interaction with others in class.
Excused absences may include personal illness, illness in the family, death of a relative and observance of religious holidays.
Notification of Absence
A parent or guardian must notify the Attendance Office (487-5170, x 6033) prior to 8:30 a.m. on a day that the student is absent. If a student is absent from school and the parent has not notified the Attendance Office, the Attendance Office is required to verify why the student is absent. Emergency contacts may be contacted, if necessary.
If a student becomes ill during the school day, a parent/guardian will be contacted if the student needs to go home.
Please notify the attendance office if your child will be arriving late to school or leaving school early for a medical/dental appointment.
The Board of Education has determined that parents may request a “pre-planned absence” for the following: family vacations; college visitations; non-school sponsored educational activities; and unforeseen emergencies. The pre-planned absence form is available on the Tremont website, www.uaschools.org/tremont, under Parent Links.
Parents are asked to complete and submit the Pre-Planned Absence Form ten (10) days prior to the first day of the absence.
