  • Good Morning Wendell Middle School. Welcome to the 2013/2014 school year. Today I am going to cover the attendance program at Wendell Middle School.
  • Our Goal at Wendell Middle School is to have all students on time and in school everyday!
  • Attendance is considered mandatory. It is the law that students must attend a school. Breaking this law could result in you and/oryour parents being taken to court. Only certain absences are considered excusable. Examples of excused absences are as follows:Illnesses or injuryMedical or dental appointments Religious observationAnd don’t forget you must turn in a note, to your homeroom teacher, within 2 days for the absence to be considered excused. So if you are sick and do not turn in a note it will be considered unexcused.
  • Here are some of the elements of our attendance program: The AttenDance, Our Tardy program which begins on October 29 and our sign in and sign out policy.
  • If you are here after 7:30, you are late to school and will be considered tardy to class unless the tardy is excused. Tardy notes are only considered excused if they are from a doctor, dentist, or other medical professional.
