Attendance Policy

Frey Elementary ~ 7:50-2:20

Please be advised of the following Attendance Policy for Cobb County schools:

The primary goal of this attendance protocol is to address unexcused absences for students ages six to fifteen. Absences stemming from out of school suspensions, while concerning, shall not warrant a School Social Work referral unless deemed necessary by school administration.

  • Three (3) unexcused absences: Teachers will communicate with parents regarding student attendance via e-mail, phone, parent conference or postcard. Documentation should be kept by teachers throughout the school year. Teachers will utilize International Welcome Center translators to assist in communicating with parents who do not speak their primary language. 
  • Five (5) unexcused absences:  Each school will utilizeBlackboard Connect generated contact through one of the following:  Telephone call, letter, and/or email.
  • Seven (7) unexcused absences: A School Social Work referral will be generated by principal or principal designee listing specific school-based interventions (telephone calls, letters, conferences, etc.) that have occurred prior to making the referral.

***Attendance and Excuses:  If your child is absence, we will need a note from the parent or guardian in order to make it excused in our computer system.  Keep in mind that there are rules governing what is considered an excused absence.  Any questions, please feel free to ask the teacher.

***Frey Students may arrive at 7:15 am.  Any students who arrive after the 7:50 bell, will receive a tardy pass from the front office and be counted tardy for the day.
