Attendance
Daily attendance is required by AZ state law. Learning suffers as a result of too many absences and tardiness.  It is the parents' responsibility to see that the child attends school regularly and failure to do so could result in penalties for the parent and child through the Maricopa County Truancy Prevention Program.
What to
do when a child is absent:
1) Parents must call the office by 8:30
AM or
a note should be sent with the student the day he/she returns to school.
2) 3 unexcused absences will result in a warning letter being sent home as part of the Operation A.I.M. Truancy Prevention Program.
3) 5 unexcused absences will result in a letter being sent home from the City Prosecutor's Office warning of a possible citation for truancy.
4) The 6th unexcused absence will result in a citation for the student and parent from the Phoenix Municipal Court for truancy as per the Operation A.I.M Program.
5) Students with 3 or more consecutive days absent will be required to present a statement from a physician in order to excuse the absences.
