It is important for students to be in class during instruction. Many Throop Students have been coming to school late. All important notes on attendance can be found on pp 1, 2 and 3 of the Throop Elementary Parent-Student Handbook.  Please note that on page 2 it states, “Tardy: Arrival to the building after 8:15 A.M. and before 9:30 A.M. (Arrival after 9:30 A.M. constitutes a morning half-day absence.

If you bring  children to school, please remember that they must be in the building by 8:15 or they will be counted as “tardy”. This allows all students to arrive to classrooms to get organized for the day.

Please read handbook for other important information regarding Throop Students.
