Our Uniform Policy:
All students are required to dress in the manner adopted by their school. Students who arrive out of uniform will be subject to disciplinary action. All students are expected to come to school everyday in their uniform. Parents, please adhere to this uniform policy, as it will be strictly

Our school’s goal is to surpass 95% Student Attendance this year! In order for your child to have
95% attendance at the end of the year they can not miss more than 9 school days. 282 students
accomplished this goal last year! At the end of each month, your child will receive a letter updating
you on how many absences your child currently has. Make it your goal to make sure that your child
earns perfect attendance each month. All parents must make every effort to have their children come
to school every day. Certificates will be given out to students that earn perfect attendance each
month. Lets all strive for perfect attendance!
If a student is absent, they must present a note to their homeroom teacher giving the reason for the
absence. Without a legitimate absent note, each absence is coded as “Unexcused”. The note must
include the reason for the absence, the dates of the absence, any medical attention that was
received, and the parent’s signature. Once a legitimate absence note is received, the absence may
be coded as “Excused”. The trigger for a truancy referral remains ten unexcused days. After eight
cumulative absences for illness, the parent must secure a doctor’s note for any future absences for
illness. If FSAS is not the student’s neighborhood school, the district’s “Transfer To Neighborhood
School Procedure” permits schools to transfer any student to their neighborhood school if “the student
has an excessive amount of absences and/or lateness during the school year.”
NO EARLY DISMISSALS ARE PERMITTED FOR ANY STUDENT AFTER 2:30 P.M.
Students who must leave school before the end of the day may be dismissed by having an approved
adult sign the student out in the office. The student will then be called from the classroom by the
office when the approved adult arrives. The adult must show a state-issued ID and must be on the
approved emergency contact list. No student will be dismissed directly from the classroom by the
teacher. Every effort should be made to have all routine medical and dental appointments scheduled
after school hours. Every instructional minute counts. Your child needs to be in school throughout the
entire school day, every day.
LATENESS TO SCHOOL:
Our school day begins at 8:15am. Students who show a repeated pattern of lateness will be referred
to truancy officials and may not be eligible for voluntary after-school activities. Students arriving after
8:25 in the morning will be marked as late, receive a late slip, and sent to class. If FSAS is not the
student’s neighborhood school, the district’s “Transfer To Neighborhood School Procedure” permits
schools to transfer any student to their neighborhood school if “the student has an excessive amount
of absences and/or lateness during the school year.”
LATENESS TO CLASS:
Regular and prompt attendance to class is expected of all students. Students who arrive late to class
may receive consequences such as detention during lunch, before school, or after school. Teachers
will keep a log of all students who arrive late to class. If a student arrives to school after 10:00 am
without a note or leaves before 1:00 pm without a note, they will be marked half-day unexcused
absence. The half-day unexcused absences will accrue to full days.
