Attendance

ABSENCE: 

All students enrolled in the Montgomery Public School System, regardless of age, are required to be in continuous attendance in their designated school. The Code of Alabama (16-28-15) requires a written note from the parent/guardian, which states the reason for the student’s absence. Parents should notify the school office at (334) 284-7130 when a student is going to be absent. Written documentation must be submitted within 3 days after the student’s return to school.

TARDY STUDENTS/CHECK-INS

Students must arrive in their classroom before 8:40 A.M. Students arriving after 8:40 A.M. will be marked tardy. If a student arrives after 8:40 A.M., he/she must obtain a check-in through the front office. A parent or guardian must accompany students into the office to check in.

Consequences will usually consist of the following:

1st Offense: Teacher Counsels and warns student.

2nd Offense: Teacher contacts parent/guardian by phone or email.

3rd Offense: A note is sent home to parent/guardian for his/her signature

4th offense: Student receives an office referral

CHECK-OUTS

To ensure the safety of the students, no one will be allowed to check a student out except those whose name(s) is/are listed on the registration card. The school principal or designated representative must grant any exception to this procedure. Individuals checking students out may be required to show a picture I.D.

Note: Students will NOT be allowed to check out minutes prior to the final bell just to avoid traffic. As a rule, students will not be checked out after 3:25 P.M. No call ahead checkouts will be allowed.

HOMEWORK/ SCHOOL ASSIGNMENTS

As a courtesy to students who may have missed school, the teacher's list their homework assignments weekly on their websites. Students who are in attendance at school are requested to utilize their daily student planner and the websites as back-up only. The teachers typically update their pages weekly, however at times this may not be feasible due to schedule changes, meetings, absences, or other conflicts. Therefore, students are also asked to find a “homework buddy” to ensure that they can obtain accurate and timely information.

MAKE-UP WORK

The administration and teachers at Floyd Middle Magnet School will always work with parents and students to complete make-up work for excused absences. If the student fails to turn in the missed work by the deadline, the student will receive a zero for the missed work. An absence for vacations is NOT an excused absence, and students will not be allowed to make up any schoolwork. Suspensions from school are also counted as unexcused absences, thus no make-up work will be given. Students will receive a zero for assignments missed for an unexcused absence. It is the responsibility of the parent to provide transportation for students to stay after school or arrive early to make-up missed assignments from an excused absence. Teachers will work with students/parents to determine when make-up work will be done.
