Absentee calls are excused because of the reason of the absence. A parent must call the Attendance Office at 754-322-0802 and give the reason for the absence or it will not be excused. When a parent calls in to excuse an absence, the following information must be given:
- Parent's Name
- Student's Name
- Student's Identification Number
- Reason for Absence
- Date(s) of Absence
- Parent(s) and /or Guardian(s) must call the absence in within a 48 hour period from the absence.
Sign outs, excused absences, and tardies will now be used to determine patterns of non-attendance. If a student is out of class 30 hours (5 days) in any marking period or 60 hours (10 days) within 90 days, the student will be out of compliance. Sanctions may include:
- Loss of academic credit
- Referral to social services
- Suspension of driver’s license
- Court appearance by parent
- Suspension of TANF payments
Absences MUST be excused within 2 days.
Sign In/Sign Outs
A parent, guardian, or designated person on the emergency card must come in to the Attendance Office to sign the student out. If the person is not listed on the emergency card, they will not be permitted to sign the student out. The sign in/sign out will be excused depending on the reason. A student can not be signed out by way of a phone call from the parent, guardian or the designated person. Students who leave campus without signing out will be considered unexcused.
