Attendance Reporting

  • Attending school every day has a positive impact on student learning and helps to put students on a track towards success. Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that children attend school daily and must authorize any absences.

    Excused absences may include illness, observance of a religious holiday, death in the immediate family, family emergency, and situations beyond the control of the student or family. Students who are absent for more than three consecutive days due to illness require a physician's note.

Reporting Procedures

  • Daily Absences
    Call your child's school to report by 10 a.m.

    Provide name of the child, grade, homeroom teacher, and reason for the absence. If no contact is made within one day of the absence, it will be considered unexcused.

    Note: As a safety precaution, parents/guardians must call the school directly to report the absence.

  • Longterm Absences

    If an absence lasts more than a week, the student or parent/guardian are encouraged to make arrangements with the classroom teacher to arrange for completion of missed classwork. Please note teachers are only required to provide assignments during excused absences and suspensions.

  • Mid-day Absences

    Students may leave during the school day only when authorized by the principal after receipt of a written note requesting permission from a parent/guardian , and when the student is picked up from the school office.

  • Ensure parent/guardian and emergency contact information is kept up-to-date in the event of an illness at school or unforeseen circumstances. Information can be updated directly in the PowerSchool Parent Portal, by calling the school office, or sending an email to registrationinfo@district65.net.
