Attendance Office

Students will only be released to adults listed on the emergency card with valid I.D. and parental/guardian permission.

Attendance Update

All Students: Please be aware—if you are absent from school or a class—you have only 5 days to clear that absence in the Attendance Office. 

Phone calls go home every night if you have been absent or tardy.  This timeline is per district policy.

If you need to have your child released early from school, please call the attendance office after 7:30 am, or one hour prior to pick-up time. 

This will give us sufficient time to locate your child and give him/her an off- campus pass to meet you at the requested time.

Attendance Policy

The Attendance Policy is vitally important to the success of the student in the classroom. Students are expected to attend all classes on time every day. Truancy and tardiness affect achievement in the classroom and are monitored daily.

If your student is excessively absent, parents will receive a phone call and/or a letter sent in the mail.  The student may also be reported to the district office.  Progressive discipline consequences given for continuing tardies. 

Tardies are not excused.

Please provide documentation of doctor/dental/court appointments whenever possible.  The student will receive an excused absence when a parent has contacted the attendance office with a note or phone call within 5 days and identified the absence as:

  1. Illness
  2. Doctor appointments (medical/dental)
  3. Family religious observance
  4. Court appearance

All other absences are unexcused.

Clearing Absences

A parent note or phone call (815-3491) is the only way an absence can be cleared.  It is expected that absences will be cleared within 24 hours.

Absences not cleared within 5 days will be recorded as a truancy.

When leaving a voice mail to clear an absence, please leave your name, student's name and I.D. number, the date, and the reason for the absence.

If you need to have your child released early from school, please call the attendance office after 7:30 am, or one hour prior to pick-up time.  This will give us sufficient time to locate your child and give him/her an off- campus pass to meet you at the requested time.

Homework will be available for pick-up between 2:30 and 4:00 P.M. in the Guidance Office on the 2nd school day after the request is received in the office.  This only applies if a student will be out more than 3 days for an excused absence.
