Parents may call the Attendance Clerk to report absences, but must also turn in the required written notification upon the student’s return. A note signed by the student, even with the parent’s permission, will not be accepted unless the student is 18 or older, is an emancipated minor under state law, or an unaccompanied homeless youth monitored by the district homeless liaison.
A note should be sent within three (3) days of the last absence. The absence will be considered unexcused if a valid note is not turned in within the timeframe. Please check Skyward often for accurate, updated attendance information and notify the campus promptly with any discrepancies. Please note that, unless the absence is for a statutorily allowed reason under compulsory attendance laws, the district is not required to excuse any absence.
