PERFECT ATTENDANCE
 
We want you at school, and having Perfect Attendance will help you keep up on your assignments, receive the content, and increase your participation.  Please make every attempt to make appointments after school or on late start days in the morning.
 

WHAT DO I DO IF I AM ABSENT?

 
When you are absent, have a parent or guardian contact the school and report the reason for the absence to one of the office staff. This is also a good time to sign up for Saturday School. REMEMBER to come to Student Services upon your return to school, so you can drop off a note from your parents
  • For students who are absent a day or two, a phone call each day is sufficient. 
  • If an absence is not cleared within two weeks, the student will be marked as unexcused.
  • Students that have 9 or more unexcused absences in a class, during the semester, will receive no credit for that course.
  • On day three of an absence, have your parent or guardian contact your teachers to request work.
  • For pre-planned absences, have your parent or guardian send a note in advance to Student Services and she’ll make sure your teachers know and are planning on your absence.
  • If you will be out five or more days for an emergency, contact Mrs. Spear AND your school counselor; we may be able to offer short term independent study, alternatives, and assistance.
  • Our automated phone messenger service contacts families for attendance and to deliver messages. 
  • The state considers it excessive when a student has 7 or more absences in any given year (for any reason), and letters begin being mailed home after the sixth absence.  Home visits may also conducted for students with excessive (six or more) absences.
  • For students that have in excess of 13 absences, doctor notes will be required to excuse the absence.
