Parents, you may now use Parent Access to send a note to excuse an absence by the following the steps below:
Log in to your Family Access (where you check your grades)
Click on “Attendance”
Select “Absence Request”
Click on “Add Request”
Then you will use the “pull down” tables to enter date(s). Add the reason for the absence(s).
Click on the “Save” button.
In order for an absence to be excused, a student must bring a note from a Parent/Guardian or original documentation from a medical facility, court, etc. or submit a note using Parent Access within three (3) days of the student’s return to school. If your child accumulates unexcused absences that total ten (10) or more days within a six month period, you and/or your child can be prosecuted for violation of the Compulsory Attendance Law. Thank you for your help in keeping your child’s attendance up to date. If you have any questions regarding your child’s attendance, please contact Paulette Jones, Assistant Principal at (972)429-3268.
