Attendance Campaign


Dear Parents/Guardians & Students,

Our goal this year, at LCCS, is to ensure that every student attends school regularly and we increase our school attendance by 15%!

Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in Pre-K  and continuing through high school. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life.

-The school day begins at 8:30 a.m. (Pre-K thru 8th grade)
-Students who are not in their classrooms by 8:30 a.m. are marked tardy
-RealTime maintains our absence/tardy counts, so log in and keep yourself updated
-Every 3 unexcused tardies counts as an unexcused absence
-High schools request attendance/tardy records dating back to 5th grade
-We want you to call the front desk and leave a message if your child is not coming in for the day
-Nurse Monya wants your doctor's notes so that your child's absences can be excused 

                                              WHAT TO EXPECT?
