Attendance Update

 

SINGLE PERIOD ATTENDANCE QUESTIONS should be addressed to the teacher, NOT the attendance office. The teacher must approve any single period corrections.

SIS PARENT ACCOUNT shows student attendance “live” and can be accessed by clicking ATTENDANCE in the SIS Parent navigation bar. Parents can see all excused and unexcused tardies and absences as well as scheduled activities by period. Clicking on the period in question will take parents to the student schedule and list the teacher and link to the teacher’s email. PLEASE CHECK SIS BEFORE CONTACTING THE TEACHER OR ATTENDANCE OFFICE.

STUDENT CHECK-OUT – The fastest and easiest way to have a student released is to SEND A NOTE TO SCHOOL WITH YOUR STUDENT. The student brings the note to the attendance office by 9:45 a.m. and is issued a check-out pass.

UNSCHEDULED STUDENT CHECK-OUT – Please note the deadline for picking up a student at the main office is 2:30 p.m.  Parents should allow at least 15 minutes for unscheduled pick up and bring photo ID to the main office to check a student out.

SICK STUDENT CHECK-OUT – Unwell students should go to the school clinic. From the clinic, the parent/emergency contact can be contacted for pick up. Reporting to the clinic helps the clinic staff identify any widespread illness at the school.

Please review the more detailed ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES.
