Student Absences Notification
Regular attendance is expected of all
students. Parents who keep their children at home on a school day should call
the office between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. If we do not hear from a parent by 9:00
am, the absence reporting system will contact the parent. Please call our 24‑hour student absence line at 503-825-5310.
With parents’ cooperation, we can assure
each child’s security.
When reporting a student absence on the
attendance line, please include the following information: Student name,
parent/guardian name, student’s teacher, date of absence, reason for absence
and a phone number where the parent/guardian can be reached.
The school day starts at 8:00 am. Students
will be admitted to class after 8:00 am with a tardy slip given by the school
office. Tardy students are a disruption to the learning process for the tardy
student and the other children in class.
It is essential that all children arrive at school on time and ready to
learn. The Child Development Office
and/or Principal’s Office will address consistent tardiness. A family plan will be developed and submitted
to school administration.
