Attendance

Attendance Procedures

1. School begins at 8:05 a.m. Students are expected to be in their first period class prior to the 8:05 bell to avoid tardiness. It is expected that every pupil will be in attendance every day during the school term and attend all classes. Parents/guardians are to call or email the attendance office the evening before or morning of the day the student will be absent (see above). At the tone or in the email please state the student’s full name, grade, reason for the absence, date, who is calling/sending email in for the absence of the student, and their relationship to the student, also please provide a phone number where you can be reached.

2. Returning to school after an absence, each pupil must present a written excuse within three school days giving the reason for the absence. Failure to provide a written note within three school days of the absence will result in an unexcused or unlawful absence. Students will not be permitted to make up academic work unless the absence is excused. Emails are an acceptable form for a written excuse. Each excuse note which is either written or emailed must have the following information:
• Full name of student as used in skyward
• Date of absence
• Grade of student
• Reason for absence
• Signature of parent/guardian
• Phone number (home & work) for verification of the note

Students who miss three or more consecutive days due to illness, a doctor’s note must be presented to return. If this requirement is not met, the absence will be treated as an unexcused absence.
