Attendance Expectations/ Procedures
As we continue to navigate through the beginning of this year, it is important to update parents and students on our attendance practices. We would like to further clarify our expectations for students attending classes in both a hybrid and/or remote setting. Please review the following procedures so you can best communicate with the building office in situations where you child will not be in school.
Students in a Hybrid Model must be present in school on the “in” day (link to schedule) to be considered present. A student who does not come into school on their “in” day will be considered absent regardless if they remote in during those days. Students that are well enough to remote in are encouraged to, but it will not replace the absence code from the district.
Illness – Hybrid and Remote Students
Students will be marked absent for illness. Students who will be absent should follow normal procedures including calling the building office to report the absence prior to school and providing a note for the absence when they return or send an email with a copy of the excuse note attached.
Late to School/Class for Students
Students who do not remote in/attend each period will be considered absent or cutting class. Students are expected to remote into their classes for attendance check-ins and to get their work for the day on their “out” or remote days.
Quarantining – Hybrid and Remote Students
Students who are required to quarantine for precaution or possible exposure and who are willing and able to learn remotely may do so and shall be marked in Skyward with an “O-Q” code. This code identifies that the child is under quarantine. Parents will be responsible to provide documentation of the need to quarantine. If the quarantining student is ill, please follow the illness procedures above.
Technology issues will happen during remote learning. In the event that internet access is not available or technology issues occur, students are responsible for contacting the building or their individual teachers to inform them of the situation.
