Attendance Policies

  • QUICK GUIDE

    What do I do if my student will be absent or late?

    Preferred: Fill out the Absence Reporting Form online.  (En español también)

    OR

    Call Ms. Patino (see contact information to right)

     

     

    Only a PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIAN that is listed in AERIES can excuse absences.  Even if your student is 18 years old!

    No hand-written notes will be accepted.

     

    How does my student leave during school time for a pre-scheduled appointment, etc.?

    Please report this on the Absence Reporting Form (English & español).  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

     

    For more information see the Red Book, pages 9 and 10.
