What is the attendance guidelines at Dogwood Hill School?
It is important that all of the students at Dogwood Hill are on time and in their classes by 9:00 AM. A child who arrives after the scheduled beginning of school is counted as late. All students who arrive late report to the main office to receive a pass. No student will be admitted to his/her classroom without this pass. A child absent from school must present, upon his/her return, a written explanation signed by a parent or guardian stating the reason for the absence. When a child is absent from school, we ask that the parent or guardian call the school nurse (337-5823). In the case of an outside appointment during school hours, please provide a written request to the school office. When the parent arrives at the school, please come to the office, where your child will be paged. You may then sign him/her out for the appointment. In the case of an emergency, the parent or guardian must come to the office before the child can leave the school. A sign-out booklet is located in the main
