Attendance and Tardiness Policy
Daily school attendance is not just a matter of law. Regular and timely attendance in school is a critical factor in a student's progress and academic success. Much of our curricular approach is directed by hands-on activities. This type of instruction requires your child's attendance in school as much as possible. Teaching our children the importance of self-discipline, responsibility, perseverance and a strong work ethic is essential to their success in life. It is the responsibility of each parent/guardian to ensure their student gets to school every day unless the child is truly ill or possibly contagious. MVP Charter School supports parent/guardians and students in their efforts to develop habits that result in good attendance, and by creating exciting classroom activities.
Each student enrolled at Midland Valley Preparatory School is expected to attend
school regularly for the duration of their time enrolled. Any absence requires a
note from a parent or guardian when the student returns to school. Notes from
parents will be kept on file for the duration of the school year. The note is to
specify the following:
- Student's name
- Parent's signature
- Date(s) of absence
- Date the note is written reason for absence
- Daytime phone number
- Reason for absence
Failure to submit a note within 5 school days of the absence will result in the absence being marked as unlawful.
Family vacations and trips during the school year will be considered unlawful absences unless there are specific educational purposes recognized by the
Administrator as a lawful absence. Approval by the Administrator must be made in advance of the trip. Parent/family illness does not count for a lawful student absence except in emergency cases, or due to special circumstances. These must be approved by the Administrator. Any student who is absent for more than 10 days will require a statement from a physician before additional absences due to illness will be excused. All absences, whether lawful or unlawful, are charged against the maximum allowed. A student cannot miss more than 10 days of school. Physician notes can and will be verified as deemed necessary.When a student is unlawfully absent for 3 consecutive days or 5 total days, the Administrator or designee will immediately attempt to establish contact with the parent/ guardian of the student to arrange a conference. During the conference a written plan will be developed to insure that the parent/guardian, student, and the school have an understanding regarding the future attendance of the student. A copy of the plan will be sent to the attendance supervisor's office. After such a conference is held, the student will not be allowed another unlawful absence.
Students arriving after 8:15 are considered tardy. If a child will not be able to
come through the main building and arrive in their classroom prior to 8:15 they
will be marked as tardy. If a child is late, the parent must walk into the front office
to sign their child in. If a pattern of tardiness is established, the parent will be
called and an attendance plan will be put into place. Additional tardiness after a
plan of action has been put into place will be considered unlawful and MVP retains
the right to remove the student from school.
Attendance, Tardy, and Early Dismissal Severity Clause
In the event that a pattern of absenteeism, tardiness, or early dismissal is
established, and in the event that an Intervention Plan has been written but is not
being successful, MVP reserves the right to remove the child from enrollment.
