Attendance Policies and Procedures
Attendance excusals must be taken care of via phone call or written note; emails cannot be accommodated. Absences must be reported within five (5) days of the missed class during the current term in order to have them excused; absences called in after this timeframe cannot be accommodated per district and school policy.It is district policy that parents may excuse up to seven (7) days in a school year. Arriving Late? – If students are less than 15 minutes late, they should go directly to class. We do not put excusals in for a tardy. If a student will be 15 minutes late or more, call the attendance office or send your student in with a note.
Street passes – The quickest option to request a street pass is to send your student into the attendance office with a note before school, between classes, or during lunch. If you cannot send a note, a phone call works just fine. Please include the student’s name and student ID number, the time the student will be leaving, if they will be returning (and when that will be, if possible), and the parent’s signature when applicable. Street passes need to be requested before the lunch hour and students need to pick them up in the attendance office.
Medical excusals require a signed doctor’s note on their office’s letterhead. They can be brought into the attendance office upon a student’s arrival or faxed Attn: Kelly Hazel at 385-646-4725.
