Close alert

Parents and Guardians:


Please make sure your child is at school on time daily.  This means all students should be in the building by at least 7:20, and in their 1st period class by 7:25, no later.


If you are driving your child to school, plan to leave earlier due to the drop-off area being a little congested in the morning.  


Send your child on the bus if possible to avoid tardiness to school.


Keep in mind we offer breakfast so if you child needs to be dropped off sooner, our doors open at 7:00 for breakfast or students can head to the atrium before classes begin.


Please call (203) 573-6307 for all absences and follow up with a note the following day.  The limit for parent notes is 9 for the school year, covering only the first 9 absences.  In order for any absences after the 9th one to be excused, notes that are accepted are doctor’s notes, religious holiday, funeral, court appearance, educational opportunities or lack of transportation.


If you are not already on Power School, consider doing so to check your child’s attendance, grades, classes and assignments.


Follow the Board of Education Attendance Policy (this can be found under the “policies” tab on www.waterbury.k12.ct.us ) and communicate with our school when attendance concerns arise.


Contact me at any time to discuss further.


Happy February!
