Effective January 7, 2012, when your child is absent, you will have
up to 72 hours after your child is absent to verify/clear your scholar's
absence(s) (via note, email, phone call to the school, or by submitting
a doctor's note). If absences are not verified within 72 hours, the
absence(s) will be considered unexcused. Please note that once our
attendance month accounting cycle closes, and absences are not verified,
we cannot overwrite or change the absence(s).
While September is Attendance Awareness Month, our district’s pledge is to create a culture of attendance every day, every month. We know that achievement and student success are inextricably linked to attendance.
Your school district leadership and staff are dedicated to ongoing communication, support and encouragement around the importance of showing up.
The most important thing we can do for our children to be successful in life is to get them to school every day and every day on time.
