Absence/Dismissal Procedures:

Illness and Emergency Absences - Whenever a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must call the attendance office before 8:00 am (Phone# 488-5401) on the morning of the absence. When calling in an absence, please leave the date, name of student, ID#, and reason for absence.

Dismissal During the School Day – If a student must leave school for an appointment, he/she must check out at the attendance office with a parent/guardian present. The student must have a written permission note from the parent/guardian to the attendance office at the beginning of school. A dismissal slip from the attendance office will be given to the student for the classroom. Upon returning from the appointment, the student must check in with the attendance office for an entry pass.

Pre-Arranged Absences – When a parent/guardian knows in advance that a student will be absent, we request that a note be sent to the attendance office with the dates and reason for the absence. The attendance office will provide a Pre-Arranged Absence Assignment Form for the student to have completed by his / her teachers.

Tardiness – Punctuality is a valuable life skill. Kinard students are expected to be on time. Any student who is late for school must report to the attendance / health office to receive a class entry pass. In order to receive an excused tardy pass, a student must have a signed written note, or a phone call from the parent/guardian indicating the tardy is for an appropriate reason.
