Attendance Policy

Grover’s goal is to have students miss no more than 8 days of school this year!

The policy of the School District requires that school-aged students enrolled in the schools of this District to attend school regularly, on time, and for the whole school day in accordance with the laws of the State of Pennsylvania.

The educational program offered by this District is based upon the presence of the student and requires continuity of instruction and classroom participation.

A note signed by a parent/caregiver must be brought to school after each absence, indicating the dates and reasons for the absence.  Absences will be coded “unexcused” if a note is not provided by the parent or caregiver.

When a pupil is absent for more than three days due to illness, a written doctor’s note documenting the medical necessity for the absence must be brought to school.  When possible, a parent is to notify the school if a pupil is to be absent for several days.

Every effort should be made to make-up work missed as a result of illness or other unexcused absence. Work missed because of absence can lower academic marks.

Students are responsible for making up work missed as a result of suspension or other disciplinary action.

Unexcused lateness which causes a student to miss all or a substantial part of the day’s instructional time may be coded as an unexcused absence.

 

Scholarchip Procedures

Scholarchip provides visual identification of students and allows authorized students into the building.  At the beginning of each day, students will be required to swipe in and their entry and time will be captured.

Please be mindful of the following:

Students will be given an ID card to use for scholarship at the beginning of the year.
All replacement cards will be a cost of $5.00.
Students that fail to replace their card will be given a temporary card each day for the cost of $1.00.
All students are responsible for keeping their ID on their person at all times.
Student attendance will be recorded at the time the students swipes in on the Scholarchip system, not when they arrive in the school parking lot.

The late time will begin at 8:30am each day.
