Tardy / Absence Policies Students need to be on time, in line with the class at 8:00 a.m., when the 2nd bell rings. Students will be recorded as tardy if they are not in their assigned spot for Fairburn in Motion by the time the Flag Salute is completed.
When your child is absent, a note or teacher/office contact is required to explain why. The current District policy is all absences are considered unexcused unless for medical reasons or bereavement. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Students leaving before end-of-day The office must mark students who leave school early "Tardy--early leave" in the computer attendance system. These tardies appear on report cards just as 'late arrival' tardies.
