Attendance and schedule
REPORTING A STUDENT ABSENCE
The parent/guardian of any student has the responsibility to notify the main office of each student’s absence prior to 9:00 a.m. on the day of the absence. When an illness exceeds the initial time indicated, the parent must notify school officials again.
Parents may call (219) 663-1507 and press 2 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. to report an absence.
When reporting an absence, the parent should give the following information:
- Name of caller and relationship to student
- Student’s name and grade in school
- Reason for absence
Parents can also attach a doctor's note to their email if applicable.
Additional attendance/tardy information can be found in our Student Handbook located on our website.
To “attend” school means to be physically present and enrolled in a school or another location where the school’s educational program is being conducted during regular school hours on a day in which the educational programming is being offered.
Any student who is enrolled and accumulates at least ten (10) unexcused absences during a school year is considered habitually truant. Any student who accumulates at least ten (10) absences, excused or unexcused, during a school year is considered chronically absent.
On distance learning days the student is absent if there is no evidence by the start of the next school day of the following: course progress, participation in virtual class meetings, participation on assigned instruction, system activity and login times, and completion of daily work and/or long term projects.
