Please take a moment to review the school’s attendance policy. Attendance information can also be found in the Ti-Book. To contact the attendance office please call 385-646-5416. The attendance office fax number is 385-646-6790.
Absences need to be excused by a parent/legal guardian through the attendance office within five days of the absence.
All absences, other than for school activities, are considered unexcused until verified by a note, phone call, fax or email from a parent/legal guardian. Unexcused absences may carry academic consequences.
Seven or more days of excused absences within a school year are considered excessive and may require a doctor’s note to excuse subsequent absences.
When contacting the attendance office, please include:
- the parent’s or legal guardian’s name
- the student’s name and student number
- the dates/times of the absence(s) and the reason for the absence(s).
If parents/legal guardians prefer to email an excuse, they should send it from the email address listed on the student’s registration card. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address on file. Please send emails to email@example.com.
Please review individual course disclosure statements to find out how teachers account for absences and tardies in their grading policies. Additionally, please see the district’s attendance policy regarding absences and truancies.
CHECK IN AND CHECKOUT PROCEDURE
When students arrive late, they need to check in at the attendance office for an admit to class. Students who are tardy more than 15 minutes may be marked absent.
When students need to check out, they need to visit the attendance office for a street pass. Please make arrangements before school begins or during the lunch period. The attendance office prefers a note from a parent/legal guardian to request a street pass, but a phone call or personal visit will suffice. The attendance office will not accept a street pass request via email. Please specify when the student will be checking out and returning. Students leaving school without a street pass will be considered truant.
