Attendance

You can check your student's attendance record in ParentVUE. If you see an absence that shouldn't be there or receive an automated attendance call when you think your student was at school, please call our attendance line or email us to let us know, and we'll get it fixed!

You may still receive an automated call even if you've left a message at the school to excuse your child's absence. If you've left a message or emailed us, the absence will be excused in the system.

The staff and administration believe that attendance is a cooperative effort between the parent and the school. Parents, please call 299-7377  or email Donna Asher EACH DAY your child is absent or tardy. For your convenience, we do have an answering machine that allows you to leave a message before normal office hours or if the office phone is busy. Please speak slowly and clearly and leave your student's first and last name and grade level. 

Remember that if students are late or leaving during the day for any reason, PARENTS MUST CHECK THEIR STUDENTS IN OR OUT IN THE MAIN OFFICE. You may send your student in with a signed note, but we will need to check the ID of an adult who is listed as an emergency contact on the child's record in order to allow a student to leave campus. 

Students who are absent, excused or not excused, have the responsibility to make up all the work missed. Students need to make arrangements with teachers when they return to school.

Students who are absent for three (3) or more days should ask a parent to call or email the attendance secretary for their assignments. 24 hours notice is needed before homework assignments can be picked up in the main office during school business hours. You may also check teachers' webpages for assignments and information. For every day a student has an excused absence, one day will be allowed to make up work (or as deemed reasonable by teacher, parent, and/or administration).

If a student arrives late to school any day, he/she must report to the main office when he/she arrives on campus and sign in. When a student is late, the parent should either: 

  • sign the student in at the office,
  • supply a note excusing the tardiness, or
  • phone the attendance office excusing the tardy
