Need to pick up your child early? Please note, you must physically come into the building with a valid photo ID in order to pick up your child from school.

To excuse an absence (select one option to excuse each absence):

When a student has 5 or more days of excused absences, or 5 days of the same period in a semester, the attendance clerk will contact the dean to see if there is a significant concern regarding the students’ attendance. 

All “excuses,” must include:

  1. parent/guardian’s name
  2. The name and ID number of the student 
  3. The date(s) of the absence 
  4. The reason for the absence 
  5. A telephone number where the parent can be contacted during the school day

Please communicate excused absences to the East Attendance Office prior to the absence or the day of the absence. 

Partials: Students may not leave school early without approval from the Attendance Office or Dean’s Office PRIOR to leaving. The Attendance Office will confirm all written notes. Partials for illnesses will be handled through the nurse or the Dean’s Office when the nurse is not available. 

Unexcused absences: Unexcused absences will be responded to with the appropriate level of behavioral consequences in the form of an attendance contract. 

Consequences for unexcused absences may include:

Tardy/Late Policy

Students are required to be in class when the last bell rings.

Unexcused Tardies

When students arrive to class after the tardy bell without a written excuse, it will be deemed an unexcused tardy. 

  1. When a student accumulates an excessive number of unexcused tardies, they will be contacted by a dean or a student engagement advocate. 
  2. Any unexcused tardies after the initial conference will result in the student being assigned to consequences identified for unexcused absences.
