Parents or legal guardians of high school students are responsible for calling the Attendance Office by 9 a.m. when their child will be absent or tardy from school.
Voicemail is available 24 hours a day.
Please indicate your child’s name (first and last), your name and the reason for his/her absence or tardiness to school. Follow up your phone call with a written note. Notes will be accepted up to three days after your child returns to school from his/her absence. If a note is not received after three days, your child’s absence will be considered unexcused. Teachers are not required to let students make up work for an unexcused absence.
If your child is late to school (after 7:25 a.m.), he/she will need to bring a note, signed by the parent or legal guardian, to the Attendance Office immediately upon arrival stating the reason for his/her tardiness. Students with a note for being sick, at a doctor's/dentist's appointment or other excused reason will not be penalized for tardiness.
If your child needs to leave school early, he/she will need to bring a note, signed by the parent or legal guardian, to the Attendance Office immediately upon arrival to school. The student will be given a pass to leave at the appointed time. Students need to sign out at the Attendance Office whenever they leave school. If a student feels ill and wants to go home early, he/she must go to the Nurse or Attendance Office to call home. Students are not allowed to call from class or use cell phones.
