Attendance Information 23-24

Please allow 48 hours for attendance changes to occur on the students’ records.

This includes, but is not limited to: excused absences due to sports, field trips, and events that happen inside the school. Thank you!

  • A letter is mailed monthly to parents of students who have at least 2 unexcused absences on their records.
    • Parents/Guardians should excuse the absences as soon as possible
  • Absences older than 2 weeks will no longer be excused
  • Students, it is your responsibility to keep track of your attendance. Check The SOURCE frequently for current attendance information.
    • For any discrepancies, come to the Attendance Office and fill out an Attendance Correction Form

Excusing Absences and Tardies

  • Parents/Guardians must call, e-mail, or have your student drop off a note at the Attendance Office
  • Always include a valid reason when excusing absences and tardies

Examples Of Reasons That Are Not Excused

  • Alarm did not go off
  • Woke up late/overslept
  • Traffic
  • Work (employers cannot require students to work during school hours)
  • Missing the metro bus
  • Consistent car troubles
  • Family issues/emergencies that are not explained and/or confirmed by a parent/guardian
  • Babysitting/driving siblings to school
  • Leaving school without parents notifying the Attendance Office ahead of time

Early Release

  • Call, e-mail, or have your child drop off a note at least 2 hrs in advance noting the time that your child needs to be released (i.e.: doctor appointments). This gives our office enough time to send your child an Early Release pass so he/she can leave on time
  • The student will not be released without permission from parent/guardian via phone call, e-mail, or a note

Update Your Contact Information

  • Only contacts in our system under your child’s name are allowed to pick him/her up, and call in absences and early release
  • Please check in with the Attendance Office to ask who is on your child’s contact list, and update when necessary

Your Child Arrives Late to School

  • Have your child come to the Attendance Office to receive a hallway pass to go to class
  • Having your child check in with the office also ensures that we can give you accurate information on whether or not he/she made it to school safely and on time
  • Students more than 10 minutes late to class are marked absent
