Administrative Procedure 330 Student Attendance for WRPS states the following:
Regular attendance and punctuality are essential if a student is to achieve
maximum benefit from his or her schooling.
Griffiths-Scott School will monitor student attendance and on-time arrivals. School
staff will communicate with parents and work together to help students attend
school regularly and arrive on time.
The students are invited into the school each morning at 8:23 when the buses
arrive. Students who walk to school or get a ride should plan to arrive at school at
8:25 - 8:30. Supervision of students’ arrival begins at 8:20 and ends at 8:35
when the bell rings. Students should not arrive at school before 8:20.
Please refer to the attached Attendance Matters brochure from WRPS for more
information in regards to the importance of regular school attendance and
guidelines for when students should remain at home due to illness.
