We will not accept phone calls to clear an absence. We must have written documentation, preferably by email, regarding absences. If you are unable to send an email please send a written note with your child upon their return.
Parents of elementary students unable to enter the absence in Smart Tag, and all secondary parents, must provide written notice, within 5 school days of the absence, to the school office. Any written or emailed notes received after the allowed 5 days will be accepted, but noted as late and the absence will not be adjusted. The absences in question will be recorded as undocumented and unexcused.
- Your student's academic success is in direct relation to their attendance
- State law requires a student to be in attendance 90% of the time to receive credit for a course
- School districts do receive funding for each day a student is in attendance
Please see the School Handbook for questions regarding absences.
