    ** Remember to send in an excuse/Doctors note anytime your student is absent**

    **Please allow 48 hours for the absences to be corrected daily. We are unable to pre-code.  If your note is for multiple days, you may receive alerts until these are corrected daily**

    Calling in a student's absence does not excuse the absence - only a submitted note or e-mail from a parent/care provider will excuse the absence (if the absence is more than 5 consecutive days, a Doctor's note is required).  A Doctor's note is required if the student missed school for an appointment, for the absence to be excused. 

    • An absence is considered unexcused when a note is not provided within 3 days of the student returning to school.
    • A note from a care provider will only excuse the days listed.  If your student is out for longer, an additional note from a parent is required to excuse the extra days.
    • If your student is sent home by the nurse, a note from a parent is still required to excuse the time your student misses school.
    • If a student has a note from a doctor that has instructions for PE/Athletics, it is the student's responsibility to make a copy for the PE/Athletics teachers.  Any note that is turned in directly to the PE/Athletics teachers that is not also given to the attendance clerk will be considered unexcused for attendance purposes.
    • 3 unexcused absences will result in a Truancy Warning Letter from the school.  A 2nd warning letter is sent at 8 absences.  9 or more unexcused absences (per year) will most likely result in a court appearance.
    • A student is allowed 9 excused or unexcused absences per semester (18 per school year) in order to meet the Compulsory Attendance Law's 10% rule.  Absences over this amount may result in loss of credit and/or grade retention.
    • The tardy bell rings at 8:10 am. Students will be counted tardy if they are not in their seats by 8:10 am.  After 10 minutes, students will be considered absent for the period they miss.
