• Absences Procedures:

    • Students arriving after school has begun need to report to the office for an admission slip and will not be admitted to class without it. A parent/guardian should accompany their student into the school to officially check them in or call the Attendance Secretary, 792-7729, to explain the reason for being late.

    • School activity absences will be automatically school excused. 

    • Absences must be verified by a parent/guardian within one week after the absence.  The school attendance phone number is 792-7729.

    • After being absent, it is the student’s responsibility to contact their teachers, make up missed work, and return it in a timely manner.

    • If your student has been marked incorrectly in a class, please have your student speak with the teacher directly the following day to have the attendance adjusted. This information can be found in Powerschool. 

    • It is best to contact teachers directly regarding missed work.  Additionally, students and parents/legal guardians are encouraged to utilize applicable teachers’ Canvas pages to access missed work.
