School Attendance Policy Reminder

The school day is 7:50am – 3:00pm. Breakfast is served from 7:20am-7:35am.  A student is considered tardy if she is not present in her assigned area at 7:50am. Students who are tardy to school must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and report immediately to the main office for a tardy admission slip.

Students are expected to attend school each day, unless sickness or special family member circumstances interfere.  A successful CGLA education depends on the student involvement and participation in each class.  A student who is absent often misses out on the valuable experience that leads to success.  We ask that you arrange medical and dental appointments at times that do not interfere with school commitments, whenever possible.  Family travel and vacation plans should be made only during school vacations, and students are expected to attend school on the days before and after vacation breaks.

If a student accumulates three (3) tardies it is equivalent to one (1) unexcused absence. Also, please be reminded that upon the sixth absence (18 tardies), the student is considered truant and we must process the paperwork and report it through the courts.

For further information regarding CGLA’s attendance policy and procedures, please refer to the Parent/Student Handbook.
