Attendance Guidelines and Procedures

Reporting an absence due to illness

Parents or Guardians of Hybrid Learning Students:  If you are calling your student out of school due to illness, please briefly detail symptoms of illness on the attendance line.  If any of the symptoms described are in the daily attestation, refer to the COVID Decision Tree for next steps.  If you choose not to leave illness details, you will receive a call from the attendance office asking for more information.  It is our responsibility to maintain the health and safety of our school community and we ask for your cooperation.  Your student's private health information will not be shared beyond administrative or nursing staff.

Reporting a school absence

To report a Full or Partial Day absence call:

Student's Absent or Arriving Late

If your child will be leaving campus during the school day, please let your child's teacher know.

When arriving on campus to pick your child up, please come to the office to sign them out

Your child will be called to the office.


Student Absences
Current Board Policy regarding absences states "It shall be the responsibility of the parent and student to establish the nature of the absence to the satisfaction of the principal or designee. All absences which are not cleared within two (2) days after a student's return to school shall be recorded as unexcused." 

Un-reported absences

If a student is marked absent from class but the office is not notified, the following steps will be taken to communicate to parents.


1. Parents will receive an “Attendance Safety Message” email by 10 AM if the school has not been able to resolve a student absence by that time.

2. If a student absence is still unresolved by the end of the day, an additional attendance message will be sent via email and phone.
