Attendance and Tardy Procedures

Union Grove believes it is very important that your child be at school and on time to maximize their learning in the classroom!  So, this year when your child is absent or tardy, you can expect a phone call from our Guidance Counselor, Linda Jackson.  

We understand that there will be days missed due to illness, especially when flu season hits!  But, if at all possible, your child needs to be at school every day.  

If you have questions you may call or email Mrs. Jackson (email: ) or refer to NC General Statutes Chapter 115C Article 26.


Our morning bell schedule is:

7:00am Doors are open and students go to the cafeteria

7:10am Students head to their classrooms

7:25am Class bell rings

7:30am Tardy Bell rings


Doctor and dentist appointments should be made after school if at all possible.  Union Grove has also identified what we are calling "Perfect Appointment Dates" for scheduling appointments during the day. These are days we are either dismissing students early or not in school.

Our Perfect Appointment Dates are:

After 11am




All Day




12/20 - 1/2

6/11 - 6/13
