Attendance & Early Dismissal

 Attendance Policy at Temple Isaiah Religious School

Your child is a valued member of the classroom community, and our program can succeed only if all children attend on a regular basis.  To meet our goals for learning and community cohesion, students are expected to attend a minimum of 80% of the time.

Individual tutoring* will be necessary if a student in grades 3 and up misses:

      20% of the classes in one semester;

·        3 consecutive class sessions; OR

·        3 Wednesdays or Sundays in a row.

 *The student will be expected to participate in 30 minutes of Hebrew tutoring for each missed class. The religious school has tutors available for parents to hire as needed.

 We know that occasionally special circumstances arise, which require a student to miss religious school (or part of a session) on a short-term basis. Parents must contact Rabbi Amy Hertz or Leslie Grossman in advance of any such circumstance to discuss alternate arrangements. We want to be sure that your child is prepared to move on to the next grade.

 Lastly, our time together is limited. Late arrivals disrupt the learning experience and hamper student and class success. Please make every effort to have your child arrive on time (Yes, on Sunday mornings, too!).
