Attendance is taken within the first 30 minutes of the start of school. After teachers submit attendance, the office manually makes changes to attendance. Students are considered tardy starting from 9:30am. 

Attendance and Tardy Reporting Procedures

Parents/guardians may notify the school in the following ways: email, written note, or phone call

Whenever possible, please notify both the teacher and the main office. 

Absence notes should contain:

  • Student name (full legal name)
  • Grade level
  • Classroom teacher (if known)
  • Dates and reasons for absences
  • Name, signature, and relationship of the person who wrote the note.
  • Date of when the note was written

Parent/caregivers may turn in absence notifications at any time. If the reason for the absence is a valid excuse, students' attendance will be corrected. 

Definition of Unexcused Absence: 

Missing a full day of school, being tardy 30 or more minutes without a valid excuse. 

Unexcused Absences Include:

  • Missing class or school without an excused or approved reason, whether the absence is student or parent/guardian/caregiver-initiated (e.g., for childcare or household shopping).
  • Absences for which advance approval is necessary and was not obtained before the absence.
