For Parents

ATTENDANCE Line 586-285-8602

When your child is absent for any reason, we ask that you call our attendance line to report his/her absence. It is available 24 hours. Please call your child in before 9:00 a.m. If you do not call in the absence, you will receive a phone call from our automated messenger system reminding you to call the school.
This is done for the safety of your child. All absences must be verified.
If a child has a fever, they will need to be 24 hour fever free before returning to school.

School begins at 8:14 a.m. Students must be INSIDE THEIR CLASSROOMS by 8:14 a.m.  The first bell rings at 8:10 a.m. Students arriving to school after the second bell - 8:14 a.m. are considered tardy and must come into the office for a tardy pass. If your child leaves before 1:30 pm, it will be considered an absence for the afternoon. ​If you pick up your child after 1:30 pm - ​it is considered an Early Pick Up ​and will be counted as a tardy.

If your child has seen the doctor for an illness, please bring in a doctor’s note. All absences are considered unexcused by the Macomb County Attendance Office for cases of truancy unless a doctor’s note is provided. So be sure to bring in a doctor’s note each time you see the doctor. Unexcused absences are not a problem unless the absences become excessive. Promptness and consistent attendance are very important to your child’s success in school.

Early Release Days - Dismissal is at 1:54 p.m.

Many parents have asked about what will be happening on Wednesday afternoons when the students are released early. Lake Shore teachers are participating in Professional Learning Communities (PLC’s) during students’ early-release time.

This form of professional development allows teachers the time to study student achievement data, collaborate to research best-practice teaching strategies, and work together to create interventions for struggling students. The schedule allows teachers to participate in PLC’s on a consistent basis, rather than on scattered dates throughout the year. Working together to build shared knowledge is the best way to achieve goals and meet the needs of students. We want to be good stewards of the time, so the focus of PLC’s is results.  Each team is to develop and pursue measurable improvement goals that are aligned to school and district goals for learning. Assessments are administered to students multiple times throughout the year to gather ongoing evidence of student learning. They examine the results to discover strengths and weaknesses in their individual teaching in order to learn from one another.

The assessments are also used to identify students who need additional time and support for learning. As a result, your student may begin working with students from other classrooms during the week. In making small groups, we give kids an opportunity to practice skills they need help on.
