Reedy Creek Elementary School Office News
~ 24 hour notification
If you plan to withdraw your child from RCE, 24 hour notification must be given and it is necessary that you come into the office on the last day of attendance to sign a withdrawal form. The parent/guardian may call the office one day prior to notify the office regarding the withdrawal. This will give our office and teachers ample time to fill out necessary paperwork (withdrawal form) and input all student grades in Pinnacle for an accurate student withdrawal grade. It will also allow the school the opportunity to check all textbooks and library books as they must be returned before withdrawal is finalized. This will expedite your child's records being forwarded to the new school, as well as your registration process there.
~ Must be prearranged
Absence from school for a family trip other than an emergency is greatly discouraged. In almost all cases, the student's grades can suffer from being absent from regular classroom activity. In some cases, advance (prearranged) approval for a permitted absence can be obtained from the Principal. Attendance records will be reviewed before a permitted absence is granted by the Administration. Excessive absences (cumulative excused and unexcused in excess of 7 days) may lead to the Permitted Absence being denied. No more than 5 days will be permitted for a prearranged Permitted Absence. Anything more than 5 days will be unexcused and you may be asked to withdraw your child from school if the time is more than 10 days. Students may re-register upon their return. Only one permitted absence form will be approved each year.
