Attendance and Student Absence

Reporting Absence

  • If your child is absent, please enter the appropriate information in PickUp Patrol.
  • Around 10:30am, families of students marked absent will receive an automated call informing them that their child is absent.
  • Contact the child's teacher to arrange to make up missed work within a 3 day period.

  • Late Arrival and Early Dismissal

    • Students who arrive after 8:55am will be marked late. If your child will be late due to an appointment, please enter the information in Pick Up Patrol as a "Late Arrival."  Please bring a doctor/dentist note with you when you drop the student off, or email it to [email protected]
    • Students who are picked up before the school day ends will be marked as an early dismissal. All changes to dismissal should be submitted through Pick Up Patrol before 2:00pm

    Attendance Notes

    • Parent notes will be accepted per board policy and can be submitted through Pick Up Patrol, [email protected], or in writing.
    • If no absence note is provided within 3 days of the child's return to school, the absence is considered "unlawful"
    • If a student is out for 3 consecutive days, a physician's note may be required and can be sent to [email protected]

    For further details on attendance policies, please see the student handbook or our frequently asked questions. Families can check their child's attendance records through skyward.
