Costello Elementary | Absence & Tardy Guidelines
Healthy Life Long Habits
Being on time is common courtesy. At school, being late interrupts classroom flow and student instruction. As creatures of habit, those habits we develop early, both good and bad, are often difficult to break. It is important that children, while in elementary school, learn the habit of being on time.
Children who are on time become adults who are on time. Being on time, taking initiative, and operating with integrity equate to current and future success.
Advance Notice is Appreciated!!!!
If your child is going to be absent, late, needs to leave early or is going home with a friend and you know a day in advance, e-mail the teacher and call the attendance line at 248-823-3701.
