Attendance

All students must be in full-time attendance. The process of education requires a continuity of instruction, including classroom participation, in order to attain the maximum educational benefit for each individual activities and interaction with the teacher and other students are vital for maximum achievement.

Attendance is the responsibility of the student and the parents/guardians.

The administration reserves the right to request a doctor’s note for any student who is absent all or part of three or more days. Any questions regarding excused or unexcused absences and tardiness will be reviewed by the administration.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to use Infinite Campus or call the attendance office to check their student’s attendance.

TELEPHONE CALLS FROM PARENTS TO REQUEST EARLY DISMISSAL

Students may be excused for part of the school day. A parent/guardian must call the attendance office before 9:00 a.m. on the day the student is to be excused. Please state the student’s name, reason for early dismissal, and the time the student will leave school. A student to be excused is expected to come to the attendance office between classes and pick up the early dismissal pass. A student will only be paged if he/she is unaware that his/her parent has requested an early dismissal. The student, and the parent picking up the student, must check out in the attendance office with the attendance clerk. If the student returns to school that same day, he/she must check in with the attendance clerk upon return. Absences not called in are unexcused. Calls received by the school from the parent after the student has already left the building will not be considered excused and disciplinary measures may occur. Notes will not be accepted and the student will be considered unexcused.


TELEPHONE CALLS FROM PARENTS/GUARDIANS TO REPORT TARDINESS

Occasionally there may be an extenuating circumstance for a student to report tardy to school. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to call the school attendance office prior to the student reporting to school. As an alternative, the parent may accompany the student into the school upon his/her arrival. Please state your student’s name and the reason for the tardiness. This tardiness will be excused. Tardiness not phoned in by a parent/guardian is unexcused. Notes will not be accepted. Tardiness not taken care of in the above manner will not be excused. Students arriving late to school with an excused tardiness should report directly to the attendance secretary who will issue an excused pass to go to class. This also applies to students arriving late due to a late school bus.
