Orono Schumann Elementary Attendance

Our School Hours are 9:10 a.m. – 3:40 p.m.

Reporting Your Child’s Absence

(For reporting absences of students in grades 3-5, please find more information here.)

Please provide the following information:

  • Student’s name
  • Student’s grade
  • Student’s teacher
  • Date of the absence
  • Reason for absence
  • Your name and relationship to the student

If the absence was not called in, please provide a written note on the day your student returns to school.

Late Arrivals

Students who arrive late for any reason (except a late bus) must sign in and obtain a tardy slip from the school office before going to class.

Excusing Your Child for an Appointment

For excused absences during the day, such as for doctor or dental appointments, students are expected to bring a written note stating the times they are to be excused. A parent must pick up and sign out children in the school office. Also, if a child is returning to school from an appointment, he or she must sign in at the school office and obtain a pass before returning to class.

Excusing Your Child for a Family Trip

Please notify the school at least three days in advance if your child is going to be absent due to a family trip.

Arrival and Departure

Students may enter the building and proceed to their classrooms when their bus arrives at approximately 8:50 a.m. Students who do not ride a bus should not arrive at school prior to 8:50 a.m. as we do not provide supervision.

All unsupervised students must leave the building by 3:45 p.m.

If children need before or after school supervision, please enroll in Spartan Kids.
