Effective January 7, 2012, when your student is absent you will have up to 72 hours after your child has been absent to verify/clear your student’s absences (via note, email- email@example.com, phone call to school, or submit a doctor’s note). If absences are not verified within the 72 hours, the absent/absences will be considered unexcused. Note: Once our attendance month accounting cycle closes due to non-verification we cannot overwrite or change that absent/absences.
