All students are expected to be in attendance to be able to take advantage of the opportunity to learn. Teachers and counselors work closely with parents to ensure that children are prompt and present each day at Nesbit, except in the case of illness or emergency.
If your child is absent, you must send a note to the teacher when your child returns to school. The absence is considered unexcused until a note is received. Only excused absences allow students to be able to makeup work. Parents will receive a letter from the school if a student misses 5 or more days of school. If a student misses 10 or more days, a letter is sent from an administrator. Students who miss more than 15 days will be referred to the social worker.
If late arrivals to school and absences become excessive, a school official will contact you. A meeting will be scheduled with you to discuss your child's attendance issues and to determine a plan to help you get your child to school daily and on time.
