Absence Note Instructions

Absence Note Instructions

In order for a student’s absence to be excused, a note with the reason for the absence must be submitted within three days of the student’s return to school.

A parent/guardian can submit a note any ONE of the following ways:

1. For present or future dates, submit an electronic note from the Absence Request tab on the Skyward Attendance tile.

2. Email [email protected] the reason for the absence or a picture/scan of a doctor/dentist note.

3. Have your student bring a note with your written signature or a medical note to the main office.

Please do not submit the same note/information in more than one way.

If you submit a note the day of the absence, you do not need to call the school to report the absence. An absence cannot be excused with a phone call. A note must be submitted.

Failure to turn in a valid note within three days of your student’s return will result in the absence being recorded as unlawful.

Unlawful absence letters are sent to your email. The third unlawful absence letter is also mailed home. After the fourth unlawful absence, an invitation to participate in a Student Attendance Improvement Plan meeting will be sent to your email.

After ten absences excused by a parent note and/or unexcused absences, the district notifies the parent through Skyward that a doctor’s note may be required for future absences to be excused.
