ST. MARK PARISH SCHOOL STUDENT HANDBOOK
ABSENCE AND TARDINESS
When your child is ill and will be absent from school, please call the school office at (206) 364-1633 by 8:45am. It is important that all students arrive at school on time for morning prayer and to receive instructions for the day. If a child is tardy, a tardy slip from the office is needed for admittance to the classroom. If a student is consistently late, it is the responsibility of the homeroom teacher to note the frequency of tardies. Habitual tardiness will be dealt with individually.
Consequences for tardies will include the following:
- Phone call home.
- Missing morning recess.
- If chronic tardies persist a parent meeting will be called.
- When a student is tardy five or more times in a month the student will not be allowed to come in non-uniform on the last Friday of the month.
