    School Doors:

    All of Pine's outside doors are locked. This is in order to protect the safety of our students. There is a doorbell at the main entrance, which will allow you to enter the school.  You should report to the office and sign in.  You will be issued an ID if you are going anywhere other than the office.

    Attendance and Tardiness:

    Each child is encouraged to be in attendance and arrive at school on time. Please talk with your child about the importance of regular school attendance. Each absence MUST be followed by a phone call to our office by 10:00 am on the day of the absence (873-2114) and/or a note explaining the reason for the absence MUST be turned in on the day of your child's return to school. If your child needs homework on the days he/she is absent, please request that work by calling our office by 10:00 am on the morning you wish to receive it or making arrangements directly with your child's teacher.  School policy is that students have as many days to make up work as days they missed.

    The district attendance policy defines excessive tardies as 5 or more in one grading period and excessive absences as missing more than 7 days in one semester. It is very important for your child to be on time and present in school each day.  You will receive daily phone notices when your child is absent.  After five or more unexcused absences you will receive a letter from us.  If attendance continues to be a problem, we may make a referral to Project Attend.
