** During the pandemic, all absences will taken under consideration by Administration before credit is lost in any class.**

Students are allowed 3 absences per class period during the semester. A parent call is required within 48 hours of absence to prevent truancy.

Please call by 9:00 am to parent verify your student's absence (PRC code in powerschool). 

Please always supply documentation when attending Medical, Dental, or Court appointments in order to have absence waived (WAI code in powerschool).  Bring documentation to the Attendance Office or have faxed or emailed. Parent notes are not accepted. I process these after 24 hours, please allow a couple days to show up in Powerschool.

Parents need to call the attendance office for students to obtain a permit to leave.  Permits to leave must be called in 30 minutes prior to student needing to leave. A PTL will NOT be issued 20 minutes prior to lunch or 20 minutes prior to the end of the school day. If the student is sick, they should visit the nurse's office.  Any student leaving campus without a PTL, will be considered truant(TR).  Please leave a detailed message (spell last name of student and the time you would like student released). Parent notes are not accepted.  Messages are checked every 5 to 10 minutes except during my lunch from 12:45 to 1:15.

A student arriving to class more than 10 minutes late needs to sign in at the attendance office and will receive a tardy late.  Two tardy lates can result in loss of credit.  
Lunch Detention- More information to come. 
*If a student is incorrectly marked absent or tardy late, the student needs to come to the attendance office to receive a Yellow Slip to have their teacher sign off on to get the absence corrected. Parents cannot call the office to correct an absence they believe is incorrect. A student must get a Yellow Slip to correct an absence. A parent can only verify an absence.
