Regular attendance is very important in order for your child to achieve his/her best in school. Tardy students must check in at the office before reporting into their homerooms. A child is considered tardy after:
- 8:35 a.m. at Prospect Elementary
- 7:35 a.m. at Seneca Intermediate
- 7:35 a.m. at Salamanca High School
Parents are reminded that if their child will be absent, they should call the school between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. on the day of the absence.
- Prospect School 945-5170, Ext. 7228
- Seneca Intermediate School 945-5140, Ext. 5464
- High School 945-2404, Ext. 6501
Even if a parent calls, the student is still required to bring a signed note from a parent on the student’s first day back, stating the reason for the absence.
Comprehensive Attendance Policy
All school districts in New York State have been required to develop new comprehensive attendance policies based on the SAVE legislation that was enacted by the Legislature. The District formed a committee comprised of parents, students, Board member, teachers and administrators and worked several months reviewing and developing a new policy that was adopted by the Board of Education on June 26, 2002, and revised in 2012.
