What do I need to know about attendance?

  • Excused Absences/Tardies
    • We require an excuse note for each absence or tardy. You can download an Absence Note.
    • You must submit an absence note within three business days of the absence.
  • Early Checkouts
    • We require an early dismissal note for each early release. You can download an Early Dismissal Note.
    • After 2:45 p.m., we will not approve an early dismissal.
    • If a student is driving, we will contact a parent/guardian before we can allow the student to leave campus. If a student requires an early pick up, the person picking up must come inside to the attendance office and provide proper ID.
  • Certificate of Enrollment
    • Between the hours of 7:45am to 3:15 pm, students may come to the Attendance Office to order a Certificate of Enrollment. The cost is $2, and it will be ready for pickup in 24-48 hours. Or, the certificate may be ordered online at myypaymentsplus.com.
