SKMS does not open for student use until 7:45 a.m. daily.  Students are not to arrive at or enter school prior to 7:45 a.m. when supervision will be provided for them.

The official school day will begin promptly at 8:05 a.m. and any student arriving after this time will be considered tardy.  Students who accumulate 4 or more unexcused tardy marks will be subject to disciplinary procedures.

The following reasons for absences are valid and excused:  illness, serious illness or death in the immediate family, emergency medical or dental attention, and absences with prior approval by school officials.  For absences to be excused a parent or legal guardian must call the school to notify the attendance clerk of the absence.  If the parent/guardian is unable to call he/she must send a note to school with the student upon the student's return.  Notes are to be turned in to the student's homeroom teacher.  Failure to notify the school of a student absence will result in the absence(s) being classified as unexcused.
