Clearing Absences
In order to excuse an absence a parent or guardian must call the Attendance Office. If leaving a voice mail message, include the student's name, grade level, reason for absence, relationship to student and date(s) of absence(s). You have 72 hours to clear an absence. The 72-hour window begins at the start of the school day that the student is absent. After 72 hours all unverified absences become cuts and will not be able to be cleared.
Students may not leave school without first checking out through the Attendance Office.Failure to check out through the Attendance Office will result in a class cut which cannot be cleared. If a student needs to leave campus before the end of the school day, the parent/guardian must call the Attendance Office to give permission for the student to leave campus prior to the designated time. The student must come to the Attendance Office to pick up an office campus pass prior to leaving campus. (The Office will not deliver passes.)
Upon returning to school a student must check in at the Attendance Office and receive an admit to class.
