Attendance

Please use the following email address to report absences.
 
  • Reminder that students can not be signed out after 3:00p. After that time, you will need to go through the carline to pick up your student. If they have an appointment, please make sure that you are signing them out prior to 3:00p.  
Daily Attendance: Regular school attendance is essential for a student to make the most of his or her education—to benefit from lessons, to build each day’s learning on that of the previous day, and to grow as an individual. In short, there is no substitute for time on task. Absences from class may result in a serious disruption of a student’s mastery of the instructional content; therefore, the student and parents should make every effort to avoid unnecessary absences. Absences due to family vacations are not excused for official attendance purposes (see the Responsive Ed handbook).
Attendance for Credit: To receive credit in a class, a student must attend at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered. These days include both excused and unexcused absences. A student who attends fewer than 90 percent of the days the class is offered may be referred to the Administration to determine whether there are extenuating circumstances for the absences and how the student can regain credit. In determining whether there were extenuating circumstances for the absences, the Administration will use the guidelines found in the ResponsiveEd Parent/Student Handbook.
