What do I do if my student will be absent or late?
Call OR Email Ms Patino (see contact information to right)
Bring a written note from a parent/guardian.
Only a PARENT/GUARDIAN can excuse absences. Even if your student is 18 years old!
How does my student leave during school time for a pre-scheduled appointment, etc.?
It is the student’s responsibility to get a Permit to Leave as early as possible during non-class time before leaving (with a note or phone call). We do NOT interrupt classes for pre-scheduled appointments. If a student leaves without a permit the absence will not be excused.
How quickly do I need to clear an absence before it becomes a truancy mark?
48 hours. Attendance records cannot be altered after 2 weeks.
Aeries tracks your student’s attendance and is updated regularly by teachers every day. Guardians will get an automatic phone call every afternoon for any/all class periods your student is marked absent for on that day.
Whom do I talk to about my student’s truancy?
Contact your student’s Counselor or Assistant Principal
