School Quality Survey for Parents

Dear Parents and Guardians of King Intermediate Students,

Your feedback about our public schools is important to us.  We respectfully request a few moments of your time to complete the School Quality Survey (SQS).  You honest responses will remain anonymous in order to gather honest responses.

A similar survey is being administered, statewide to all DOE students in grades 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 and 11, and all teachers and staff.  As a parent, this is your chance to be heard.

A survey form was sent home on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. If you did not receive the survey form or have misplaced it, you may complete the SQS Parent Survey online at:

Attention: Please Know Our School Attendance Policy

Information pages from the King Student Planner

 
 


GENERAL INFORMATION

ATTENDANCE (School Attendance Procedures, State of Hawaii, July 2010)
Students need to attend school daily and be in class on time so that optimum benefits of education can be achieved. Excessive absences and tardies are unacceptable and prevent maximum teaching and learning from taking place. In order to ensure students’ accountability for their attendance and to ensure consistent data collection, the school will process and maintain attendance on a daily basis.


All absences will be recorded as UNEXCUSED if a note or parent call is not received. If a student is going to be absent, a parent needs to contact the school (233-5727) by 9:00 a.m. The first 3 days of absences due to illness will be excused with a daily parent call only. After 3 days of absences, a doctor’s note (with clearance to return to school) is required for consecutive days absent due to illness. Please note that a student is marked absent for every period missed. Our automated phone system will be calling every student marked absent, so we thank you ahead of time if you have already made contact with the school.


ALL ABSENCES WILL BE RECORDED AS UNEXCUSED unless the following criteria are met with verification. The school will only excuse absences when written documentation (note) is submitted within three (3) days upon the student’s return to school, and absences are for one of the following reasons:


1. Illness, injury, quarantine (chicken pox, measles, etc.), verifiable by a doctor’s note (required after the third day of consecutive absence due to illness). If your child has excessive absences, we will ask to speak to your child’s doctor so we can assist in keeping your child in school, and you may be requested to get a doctor’s note for every day of absence.
Doctor/Dental appointment verifiable by a doctor’s note
Death in the family
Court attendance or approval
Special cases pre-approved by the Principal
School authorized activities, which may include but are not limited to:
a. On campus activities, such as: appointments with a counselor or
Administrator, treatment in the health room, assigned detention
or in-school suspension
Off campus activities, such as: student council related activities, field trips
Other activities pre-approved by the Principal or designee prior to the activity/absence occurring

*Note: Parents must notify the school administration in writing at least 2 weeks in advance of any extended absences due to family vacations, youth camps, and/or sports competitions. Administration has the discretion to determine if the absence will adversely affect student academics and/or if attendance is a concern and discuss those concerns with the parents and student. These absences will be recorded as unexcused.


Requesting Homework for Absences:
If a child is absent from school for three (3) or more consecutive days, the parent/guardian may request for homework by calling the school office at 233-5727. A 24-hour notice is needed for teachers when a homework request is made. You may pick up the homework at the front office after 2:30 p.m. of the day following your request. You may call the front office to confirm that there are assignments for your
child before coming to the school. Also, please check your child’s Jupiter Grade site for homework postings and/or downloadable assignments.


Class Cuts: Absolutely no make-up work will be given for class cuts.


Tardies
·      Any student that is tardy upon arriving to school will need to check in at the office.

o   Medical/dental appointment with doctor’s note
o   Student detained by teacher/school official with note from person who detained student
o   Delayed school bus
o   Unusual weather circumstances (approved by Administration)
o   All excused absence reasons apply
An administrator must review all other reasons before a tardy is excused.

Unexcused tardies include, but are not limited to:
1.     Overslept/late start
2.     Missed the bus

4.     Personal business
5.     Car problems
