5) My student was marked absent, but was at a school sponsored
activity (ex: sport, club event, field trip)
If you have been marked absent due to a sport, extracurricular or
other school-sponsored activity, please see the procedure below:
Please allow 3-5 school days for processing before
contacting the school.
- If after 3-5 days the absence is not cleared, you first need
to contact your coach, sponsoring staff member or club advisor.
The coach, sponsoring staff member or club advisor will need to
contact the Attendance Office on your behalf.
- If you do not get a response from your coach, sponsoring
staff member or club advisor – contact an administrator for your
assistance. The administrator will contact the coach,
sponsoring staff member or club advisor and inform them to
contact the Attendance Office.
It is school policy that the absence must be cleared by
the coach, sponsoring staff member, or club advisor. We cannot
accept parent/student requests for correction of this absence
type. Any attendance correction form received related to an
absence of this type will be automatically denied.
6) My student was marked absent, but wasn’t absent to a class.
How do I fix that?
Please inform your student to obtain an Attendance Correction
Form located at the Attendance Office window to request changes
to absences marked in error. Tardies are not able to be amended
unless they are incorrect.
