Attendance Policies & Procedures Reminder
It is important to follow the necessary steps when absent:
Step 1 - Parent/Guardian should notify attendance office by phone, email or fax of absence in a brief message stating
name, ID#, grade, date and reason for every absence.
Step 2 - Note must be submitted to the attendance signed by at least one parent or guardian the day student returns to school. The note must include student name, ID#, grade date(s) and periods of absence, and reason for absence. Name and signature of parent/guardian and relationship to student must also be on the note with a current phone number.
Educational guidelines require the school to have a note for student absences. The following procedures will be followed:
If a student does not bring in a note they will be assigned Saturday School. The absence will be considered a truant or unexcused absence.
Once a student has received a Saturday School assignment they have one day to clear the absence with a note from their parent or guardian. If the note is brought in the day after they are originally assigned Saturday School they will not have to serve Saturday School.
If the note is not brought by the end of the day after Saturday School is assigned the student will have to serve their assigned Saturday School and the absence will stay as a truant or unexcused absence.
Students must report to the attendance office when they receive a call-slip. It is your opportunity to submit your note so you will not be assigned Saturday School. Failure to appear will result in a referral to Saturday School.
