Attendance & Absence Reporting

Reporting an Absence

  • It is the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to report their student’s absence each day the student is absent.
  • Absences must be reported within 5 instructional days and will be marked unexcused until they are cleared by the parent/guardian.
  • We don’t make assumptions about attendance based on previous absences since circumstances can change daily.
  • We do not pre-code absences due to illness without a doctor’s note.
