• At Whitlow Elementary School, we believe that regular and punctual attendance is a prerequisite to success in school, as well as, the world of work.  Georgia law requires that children attend school daily unless prohibited from doing so by personal illness, medical appointment, death in the immediate family, observance of a religious holiday, mandated by court order, hazardous conditions, voting or registering to vote.  Unfortunately, if we do not receive a written note within 5 school days of the absence/late check-in/early check-out, your child's absence will be considered unexcused.  Notes may be turned in to the Attendance Office, faxed to 678-965-5091, or emailed to attendance @ WhitlowReceptionist@forsyth.k12.ga.us  . The note should include the students' name, date of the absence, reason for the absence, and your signature.  Also, our policy considers a combination of 3 unexcused late check-ins/early check-outs as one unexcused absence.  Please help us teach your children by having them in class by 8:20 A.M. each day.  We encourage you to use the bus system to ensure that you child is punctual.  We thank you for your support and cooperation concerning this matter.
    Attendance email address is: WhitlowReceptionist@forsyth.k12.ga.us . Please feel free to call the front desk with any questions you may have.  Her number is 678-965-5090 X-370100.
