The State of Michigan requires all children between the ages of 6 and 16 to be in school; therefore, records will be kept of all absences. After five, ten, and fifteen absences, a letter from the principal will be sent to parents. The St. Clair County Truancy Officer will be contacted when a student has excessive absences or a pattern of poor attendance.
If your child needs prescription or over the counter medication administered during school hours you may access the ‘Request to Administer Medication’ form at http://www.eastchinaschools.org/. Click on ‘Parent Resources’, then ‘Forms’, then ‘Enrolment’. You and your doctor will need to complete the form and return it to the school office along with the prescribed medication in the original container appropriately labelled by the pharmacy. Transporting medication to and from school has to be done by the parent, or an adult approved by the parent. Parents are encouraged to give medication before or after school hours, however, parents are welcome to come to the school and administer medication to their child. All medication will be kept in the office.
