Attendance and Early Dismissal


Absence: If your child is absent, please call or notify the school. When he or she returns to school you must send in a note explaining the absence.

Leaving School Early: If your child needs to be dismissed during the school day, send a note with your child in the morning. Dismissal procedures differ from school to school. Consult your school handbook or call the school office to learn the proper procedure.

Early Release Day:
Days that are noted as Early Release days means that the school will begin at its normally scheduled time, but will let out early. Elementary school early release time is at 11:15 AM. The Middle School early release time is at 12:10 PM and the High School early release time is 12:53 PM. School buses will still transport children according to the same procedure, just earlier in the day. Sometimes this is also referred to as a “half day.” In schools with half day kindergarten, there will be no PM Kindergarten classes.

2 Hour Delay:
When there is bad weather, there is a possibility that school will open a little later than usual. This delay will be reported on the radio and also on WMUR-TV [channel 9]. All morning schedules for bus pickup and arrival at the school, will be delayed by 2 hours. If you are uncertain where to find out where else you might obtain this information, you can contact the school directly or check their respective web sites for more information. Fewer than three delays will not affect the overall number of days that school will be in session; three 2-hour delays equal one full day and will be included in the snow day count to determine if days need to be made up in June.

Snow Days: In the event that the weather is too bad to simply delay the opening of the school day, the school will be closed for the day. All programs associated with the school will not operate on those days. Information about a snow day will will be reported on the radio and also on WMUR-TV [channel 9]. If you are uncertain where to find out where else you might obtain this information, you can contact the school directly or check their respective web sites for more information. Any day that is declared a snow may affect the overall number of days that school will be in session. An excessive number of snow days may require the children to stay in school beyond the scheduled last day of school on the calendar.
