IT NO LONGER MEANS 1ST BLOCK, 2ND BLOCK, 3RD BLOCK, 4TH BLOCK

 

If you get an automated message regarding an absence for your student, it will say in the message :

 

Your Student has an unverified absence for the following period(s) on (Date) and will list the periods.  1 ,2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Example:

           Period 1 would mean they missed their first class on a Maroon Day

           Period 2 would mean they missed their first class on a Gold Day

           Period 3 would mean they missed their second class on a Maroon Day

           Period 4 would mean they missed their second class on a Gold Day

           Period 5 would mean they missed their third class on a Maroon Day

           Period 6 would mean they missed their third class on a  Gold Day

           Period 7 would mean they missed their fouth class on a Maroon Day

           Period 8 would mean they missed their fourth class on a Gold Day

IT NO LONGER MEANS   1ST BLOCK, 2ND BLOCK, 3RD BLOCK, 4TH BLOCK

 

When you are calling in to excuse your student’s absence, please use the PERIOD it tells you on the message, to request the change in attendance.

 

The other part of this change, is calling in for your student to leave school early.

The safest and most accurate, would be to request the EXACT TIME you want your student to leave the school.  If you say 3rd period on a Gold day, we will most likely believe that to be the class from 12:05 to 1:37.  If you say 3rd period on a Maroon Day, it would mean the class from 9:37 to 11:12.  Therefore, please give the EXACT TIME you want your student to leave their classroom if you are requesting a Permit To Leave The Building.

 PRE – ARRANGED ABSENCE

This form will be signed by the student, the parent, an administrator and their teachers. It will also give the student their assignments for the time they will be missing.  To have it recorded as a Pre -Arranged Absence in the student’s attendance, the form must be turned in to the Attendance Office after all signatures have been obtained.
