Tardy Policy:
All students who arrive after 7:45am are considered tardy and should be signed in by an adult in the front office.

Early Checkouts:
In order to safeguard instructional time and maintain campus safety, please refrain from checking students out after 2:30pm unless it is an emergency. 

Transportation Changes:
Transportation changes must be made BEFORE 2:00pm to ensure students are notified before the end of the day. Please contact the front office before 2:00pm if you need to change the way your child goes home for the day. 

Check Out/In Procedures:
Students arriving late or leaving early must check in/out through the front office. Parents picking up their child during the school day are required to come into the front office to sign the student out and must show photo identification. Parents are discouraged from checking students out of school for non-medical reasons. Students will not be allowed to check out from school with any person that is not listed on their enrollment card. 

Attendance Policy:
Attendance at school is important for successful academic progress. Regular attendance it also required by Arkansas State Law 6-18-221. It is important for students to be at school each day and on time.

Under the new Every Student Succeeds Act attendance will play an integral part of each student’s educational performance. The new law defines absenteeism in three risk categories:

  • Low Risk: A student that misses less than 5% of days enrolled. Each school year is 178 days. This translates to 0-9 days absent per year.
  • Moderate Risk: A student that misses 5% to 10% of the days enrolled. That translates to 10-18 days absent per year.
  • High Risk: A student that misses more than 10% of the days enrolled. This translates to more than 18 days absent per year.

Our goal at Monitor Elementary is to have all students remain in the low risk category. All absences must be reported to the school office. We do understand that children get sick periodically. Please provide a note or call the office any time your student is absent.
