Attendance is a critical part of the education experience. It is important that every student is present for the entire school day, and for as many of the 180 days as possible. At Davies, attendance is the responsibility of the student and parents/guardians. Davies seeks to develop a partnership with parents/guardians to help and encourage students to attend school regularly.
Parents/Guardians must call the Attendance Office at 401.728.1500, ext. 320 (available 24hrs) to report an absence. Please leave your name, the studentís name, and a number where you can be reached.
Family Vacation Policy
Family vacations during scheduled school days will be considered unexcused absences. Students will be required to obtain work from their teachers before they leave for vacation. They must have their work completed and submitted to their teachers the day they return from vacation. Tests may be made up when it is convenient for the teacher. Davies strongly discourages the use of school days for family vacations.
Students absent from school are still responsible for the work missed. Please refer to the Student Handbook for guidelines.
