GENERAL ATTENDANCE INFORMATION
Regular school attendance is important to succeed in school; however, there are times when attendance is not healthy or even possible due to other circumstances. Listed below is information explaining the procedures for students that are absent from school. Absences are classified as excused or unexcused.
When a student is absent from school:
Notes from parents/guardians explaining reasons for absences are required for every absence. Excuse notes must be submitted to the Attendance Office within two (2) days of the absence. The note must contain the full name of the student, the reason for the absence, date(s) of absence, parent/guardian’s signature, and phone number. Once the note is received the unverified absence will be changed accordingly. Parents/guardians do not need to call the attendance office for absence.
When a student arrives late to school:
Parents/guardians do not need to call the attendance office for a student arriving late to school. A note as listed above must accompany the student for any excused tardy. When a note is presented by the student, and signed by the parent, the parent does not need to accompany the student into the school. The parent must accompany the student if there is no written note received for the tardy to be excused.
