Regular daily attendance is expected of all students as frequent absences from the program disturb the students’ and their peers’ academic and emotional social progress. All registered students are to attend all activities regularly and promptly for which they are scheduled. If a student plans to be absent or has to leave the program early, Mrs. Hammond must be notified in advance by letter or phone call (704-968-5230). If a student needs to leave the program early, parents should contact Mrs. Hammond before 4:30pm on the same day. Parents cannot pick up children before 4:30pm due to higher amounts of school traffic during school dismissal. s. This assures that the student(s) are dismissed properly and all the teachers can be informed of the student’s absence and plan the student’s work accordingly. Certain absences are considered excused absences for recording purposes, however, a written notice is still required. Excused absences include: those due to illness, quarantine, medical, dental, optometric, or chiropractic appointments; the student’s attendance at a funeral for a member of the student’s family and exclusion of students failing to meet immunization requirements.
If a school day teacher has to work with a Before & After School participant, the teacher must provide a notice and inform the Director by email. Students not following these procedures will be withdrawn from The Before & After School Program unless he/she provides a valid excuse in writing.
