ALWAYS send a note or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org when your student returns from any absence, with the date(s) absent, student’s full legal name and reason for absence. Please do not use nicknames because attendance is taken through Infinite Campus. We will not accept notes/emails after two weeks from date of absence. The absence will remain unexcused.
A DOCTOR’s NOTE is required for 3 or more consecutive days of absence. When absences (whether full day or part day) become chronic, students are expected to submit MEDICAL DOCUMENTATION verifying the reason for the absence(s).
Please keep in mind that teachers will take attendance each class period. If the student signs in after attendance is taken, then that student may be marked tardy-unexcused. However, if the student has a valid tardy excuse, then please email Ms. Howard as soon as possible.
All absence emails and medical excuses must come from a parent's email and go to Ms. Howard. You can view the complete Attendance Protocol HERE.
