Your child is a vital part of our school, and his/her attendance is crucial to ensure that learning can occur. We strongly recommend that you read the section regarding attendance in its entirety. TIS policy regarding excuses is as follows: If your child is absent, a written explanation of his/her absence from the parent or guardian is required within three days of the date of return. If no note is sent, the absence remains unexcused. Notes will not be accepted for excused absences beyond the third day after your child returns. Students are referred after the fifth unexcused absence to Early Warning (a program sponsored by the Shelby County Juvenile System). This is in accordance with the Alabaster City Code of Conduct. Attendance letters will be sent by our assistant principals to notify parents when students are in jeopardy of being referred to Early Warning. TIS administration further recommends parents to be present at any attendance conference scheduled for your child. TIS strictly follows the attendance policies outlined in the Alabaster City Code of Conduct.
Students are considered tardy after 7:45 am. If a student arrives after 7:45, they must check in the front office with a parent/guardian. A referral to Early Warning is made when tardies accumulate (more than two per month).
Early morning care will not be offered this year. Students may begin arriving at school at 7:00. However, we do offer child care starting at 6:30 each morning if needed at a cost of $2 per day. Please do not drop your children off prior to that time as no one will be available to supervise them. We appreciate your cooperation in this policy in order to ensure the safety of our students.
School is dismissed at 2:45 pm.
Transportation changes will not be accepted over the phone. Please send a letter to school with your child stating your child’s name/teacher, the type of change in transportation, and the date(s) it will affect.
