Attendance Information:

ANY NOTE OR EMAIL WRITTEN TO THE OFFICE MUST HAVE A STUDENT’S FIRST AND LAST NAME.  NO NICK NAMES PLEASE!

You must come into school and sign your student in and out during the school day. Your signature IS the only excuse needed. Please only call the attendance line when your student misses FULL DAYS of school. 

If you know your student will have an appointment during the school day, send a note with your student with the time that you will pick them up and have them bring it to the main office before first period SAME DAY and exchange it for a pass.  This process will help to ensure that your student is in the office waiting for you otherwise, make sure to allow plenty of time when you arrive for your student to be called to the office.   

When your student is marked Tardy or Absent by a teacher after being in attendance during the school day, you will need to contact that teacher for an explanation or correction. You can find all teacher contact information in the  “Our School” then under the "Staff List" tab.
