There are many benefits for children with good attendance. They get a positive start to their day, are present to hear special announcements and lunch choices, they participate in the morning meeting, and learn the schedule for the day. They feel more connected to their classroom because they are part of the group from the beginning to the end.
At Crest View, students need to be present from 8:40 a.m. until 3:20 p.m. We realize that there are occasions when a student will need to miss school. When that occurs, the following procedures need to be followed:
Call the attendance line, 763-561-5165 press 1, to report an absence by 8:40 a.m. If you are unable to notify the school that morning, please send a note with your child the next day they return. If no phone call is made, or no note is sent, the absence is recorded as unexcused. The principal shall have the final authority to determine whether an explanation for an absence shall be considered an excused absence.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
