Attendance Policy


We take attendance at Hallett Elementary School very seriously. When your child arrives late or leaves early, it can have an effect on their learning. Instruction is interrupted when sending your child to the office or restarting a lesson if a child comes late, which impacts all students, not just your child. Lost classroom time is recorded on their attendance report and after so many absences, we will schedule a conference to discuss how we can best support you and ensure your child gets adequate learning time. Although we realize this is sometimes difficult, we would like to encourage you to make all appointments outside of school hours. If you have questions regarding this policy, please contact Taylor McFarland, our School Counselor, or Kristin Kuster, our Principal. Thank you for your help to have your child at school and for partnering with us to ensure their best learning experience. 


If your child is going to be absent or late or if you know of future dates they will be absent or late, please call or email to let us know. Please excuse absences within 48 hours of the time they were absent. Thank you.
