• Attendance Matters



  • CLEARING ABSENCES: We need your help to keep accurate attendance

    • If you or your child believes their absence is a mistake, they should discuss it with their teacher.  They are the only one who can truly verify their attendance.  The teacher can fix it in Aeries or sign a note and the student can bring it to the attendance office. 

     

    • If your child will be (or has been) absent from school please contact the Attendance office immediately (either by phone or a signed note)
      • Notes and voicemails should include: 
        • Student name
        • Date(s) and/or period(s) absent
        • Reason for absence(s)
        • Parent/guardian name
        • Phone number
        • Signature
      • Notes can be dropped off at the attendance window.
    • Parents have 3 days (72 hours) from the date of absence to clear any absences.
    • If the school is not contacted or a signed note is not received from the parent/guardian explaining the absence it will be marked U (cut) and will be coded as truant for that class period or day.
    • If the school is contacted and the reason for the absence is inexcusable, or exceeds the allowed parent verified absences the absence will be marked as U (cut) and will be coded as truant for that day or class period and cannot be cleared.
    • If the student is seen by a medical professional please bring a doctor note.
    • Parents can clear up to 10 absences per school year, each additional health related absence must be cleared by a doctor's note and will be coded as G.
