STUDENT ABSENCE

  1. RSS has a cumulative curriculum, where each concept depends and builds upon prior lessons. Attendance is vital for learning, and as such students are allowed ONLY 6 absences per year (illness, travel etc.).
  2. RSS activities and field trips are part of the curriculum, and students will be marked absent if they do not attend.
  3. Parents will receive a reminder after 3 absences, and a meeting will be scheduled after 5 absences. RSS reserves the right to unenroll any student that exceeds 6 absences.
  4. Parents must email their child’s teacher directly, if a student will be absent.
