Pinnacle Peak Preparatory Attendance Policy

Failure to report a child’s absence will constitute an unexcused absence or truancy. It is for your child’s protection that this policy is in place and we appreciate parental cooperation and support. It is a matter of Governing Board Policy that a student may be retained for excessive absences that affect his/her academic progress.

Reporting Your Child's Illness
If your child is ill, please call our 24-hour Attendance Line at (602) 449-6701 by 8:45 a.m. the morning of the absence.
The State Department of Education tracks many health problems, so it is important to state specifically why your child is absent. Illness reasons are listed below:
- Head Lice
- Strep Throat
- Pink Eye
- Chicken Pox
- Gastro-Intestinal (Stomach upset, flu, diarrhea)
- Upper Respiratory (Cold, sore throat, bronchitis, congestion, strep throat, etc.)
- Excused Absence (Symptoms that are not contagious: headache, vacation, personal)
It is mandatory that all absences are called in by a parent or guardian. The student or an older sibling may not excuse the absence. If a child is absent and we do not hear from a parent or guardian, we will try to contact them by phone. If we are not successful, it will be marked as an unexcused absence. If you need to contact the school nurse, please feel free to call her directly at (602) 449-6703.
When Can My Child Return to School?
Please remember it is district policy that your child be fever free (no fever without the aid of Tylenol or Ibuprofen) and vomit free for 24 hours prior to returning to school. This district policy protects all students from illness. Thank you for your help.
The bell rings at 8:10 a.m. and classes begin at 8:15 a.m. each school day. We encourage all students be present when their teacher begins instruction to avoid disruptions. A student is tardy if they are not in their classroom at 8:15 a.m.
