Partial Day Absences


It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to correct all absences with the attendance office per AR 5113 via a telephone call.   Failure to do so will result in a CUT for each absence.  Emails are not permitted to report any absences.

**AR 5113 States that all absences which are not cleared within two (2) days after a student's return to school shall be recorded as unexcused (CUT).  (see Truancy)


ARRIVING LATE - Students who are not in the classroom when the bell rings are considered tardy and or absent.  Students must always sign in at the front office upon arrival before going to class even if a parent has called in.  Failure to complete this form will result in a cut.  Parents cannot clear these types of absences.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  Parents, please report all tardies and or absences.  Unreported absences will automatically turn into CUT per AR 5113.   


LEAVING EARLY -  We will not call students out of class to leave early for an appointment - A call from parent/guardian must be received prior to the student leaving campus.  Students must pick up an early release pass prior to the class they are leaving (this gets them out of class). Additionally, students must sign out at the Attendance Office before leaving campus.  Failure to complete this form will result in a CUT for any missed classes. Parents cannot clear these cuts. This is a safety policy that is strictly enforced and is outlined in the student handbook. NO EXCEPTIONS.  This policy is outlined in the student handbook.


If a student becomes ill while at school (not feeling well, migraine, sick, etc.), he/she must report to the nurse's office immediately.
