Attendance Guidelines and Procedures

Reporting a school absence

What is an Independent Study Contract?


Short-term Independent Study may be arranged for students that will be absent from regular instruction for a minimum of five (5) consecutive instructional days (Board Policy 6158). A request for Independent Study should be submitted five school days prior to the absence, and the Principal has the right to deny a short-term Independent Study agreement. If approved, the work must be completed and turned in on the assigned due date or when the student returns to school, whichever is first.

  • Stop in office and fill out the  form and turn into your childs teacher at least five school days before departure.
  • Pick up your students work the day before departure.
  • All work must be completed and turned in to teacher the date your student returns to school.

Please contact School office for an independent study contract.

Attendance Procedures

1. Parents will receive an “Attendance Safety Message” email and phone call by 10 AM if the school has not been able to resolve a student absence by that time.

2. If a student absence is still unresolved by the end of the day, an additional attendance message will be sent via email and phone.

All unresolved absences will be unexcused absences.

Student Absences

Current Board Policy revision regarding absences.
"It shall be the responsibility of the parent and student to establish the nature of the absence to the satisfaction of the principal or designee. All absences which are not cleared within two (2) days after a student's return to school shall be recorded as unexcused."
