When your child is sick and does not attend school, you are not required to call in and report an absence.

HOWEVER within 48 hours following an absence that is NOT school related, a student MUST present a signed note from his/her parent/guardian to the Attendance Office explaining why he/she was absent.   You may submit via the online form. (It must be sent from parent/guardian email address we have on file).  Please include Student name, ID, reason for absence and parent /guardian’s phone number.

Please note:  if a student is absent 5 or more consecutive days a Doctor’s note will be required, upon the students return to school.

Upon returning from a medical appointment or court appointed appointment, the student must turn in the note to the Attendance Office within 48 hours of the absence.

To receive credit in a class, a student must attend at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered.  A student who attends at least 75 percent but fewer than 90 percent may receive credit for the class if he or she completes a plan, approved by the principal that allows the student to fulfill the instructional requirements for the class.

We will be implementing our Tardy Calculator system.  When a tardy is recorded, you will receive an email immediately alerting you to the tardy.

A student is considered tardy to class if he/she is outside of the classroom without a hall pass when the tardy bell rings.  Teachers follow the guidelines to ensure that all students have the same requirements for attendance.  Once the tardy bell rings, students entering the classroom will be counted tardy on attendance by the teacher.
