Attendance Information

Checking students In and Out of School
If a student is late to school, they must check in at the front desk and obtain a pass to class.  If a student leaves early, a parent must come to the office and sign the student out and the secretary will then call the child down to the office to meet you.  Please send a note or call when your child plans to leave early so the teacher is aware of it.  Attendance is recorded by the Health Paraprofessional in the Tatanka Health Office.  If you have questions, you may contact Sarah Krolak at 763.682.8644.

Picking Up and Dropping Off Students
If you bring your child to school in the morning, please do not arrive before 7:25 a.m.  When picking up or dropping off your child, please refrain from using the circle drive as it is for buses only.  Because of the traffic danger in the parking lot at the end of the day, please pick up your student in the parent waiting area (small gym/activity room) OR you can come to the office and we will call your child down to the office.

Student Attendance
If it is necessary for a student to be absent, please call the Health Office at 763.682.8641 and indicate the reason for the absence by 9 a.m.  Parents will be contacted at work or home if an absence is not reported.

You are strongly encouraged to take family vactions during school holidays such as winter or spring break.  In the event this is not possible, the office as well as your child's teacher should be informed in advance.
