You may leave a message at any time.

 

Clearing Absences

In order to excuse an absence a parent or guardian must call the Attendance Office. If leaving a voice mail message, it must include:

- the student's name
- grade level
- reason for absence
- date(s) of absence.                  

Students may not leave school without first checking out through the Attendance Office. Please remember, we are legally responsible for your student's whereabouts once he/she has arrived at school. Failure to check out through the Attendance Office will result in a "class cut" which cannot be cleared.

If a student needs to leave campus before the end of the school day, the parent/guardian must call the attendance office to give permission for the student to leave campus prior to the designated time. The student then must come into the Attendance Office to pick up an off campus pass prior to leaving campus.

Parents/guardians may not clear a student's absence for periods missed in the middle of the school day. For example a parent/guardian may not clear a student who misses 3rd period to work on a project for his/her 4th period class.

 

Full Day Absence

You have 3 Days (72-hours) to Call us.
Parents or guardians have a 72 - hour window within which to place a call to the school to excuse an absence. The 72-hour window begins at the start of the school day that the student is absent. 

 

Make-up Work

It is the responsibility of the student to contact the teacher for make-up work when make-up privileges have been granted. Some teachers limit time allowed for make-up work. For extended absences you may fill out a homework request form (see below)
