If the lines are busy or no one answers, please leave a message or email as we check those frequently.
For the safety of students and the accurate monitoring of attendance, please follow the procedures below.
When calling the attendance line, please leave a VOICE MAIL message with your student’s name, SPELLING LAST NAME, your name and phone number where you can be reached, the date and times of the absence, and the reason your student is missing class.
1.) Absences cannot be excused without a specific date and specific class period given or all day.
2.) Errors: If you believe your student was marked tardy or absent in error, your student should communicate directly with their teacher to clear up any discrepancies. If any correction needs to be made, your student's teacher will email the attendance office with any corrections needed. Due to call volume, the attendance office cannot contact your student's teacher for you.
Our computerized parent notification system will contact you each evening to inform you of unresolved absences. Messages on the attendance line are reviewed daily and every effort is made to update PowerSchool in a timely manner, however, changes may take up to 24 hours to reflect in our student’s record.
We appreciate your help in following these procedures. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Attendance Office.
Early Dismissal Procedures
Please call the attendance line to excuse your student from those periods they will miss completely. If you are calling with less than one hour's notice of the required early dismissal. The attendance office can contact the class to notify the teacher to release the student. Due to the size of our campus, requests to release a student from class cannot always be accommodated on short notice – we may not have someone available to deliver the notification in a timely manner.
Our computerized parent notification system will call your home each evening to inform you of unexcused absences. A call to the Attendance Office to excuse the absence on the day of the absence (before 8:40 a.m.) will prevent the computer from calling you. We appreciate your help in following these procedures. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Attendance Office.
