Attendance

To report an absence, please contact the Attendance office by calling 662-2930.

In complying with state law, students are expected to be present at school and on time to class.

Excused Absence will be issued for the following reasons:

  • Personal illness
  • Death in the family
  • Other emergencies which, in the school’s judgment, require the student to be absent
  • Religious holiday or observance

Parents have two school business days after a student has returned to school to ask that a student’s absence be excused. After this time the absence will be marked unexcused.

Unexcused Absence will be issued for the following reasons:

  • Truancy
  • Reason for absence is not justifiable
  • Student fails to bring a note from parent/guardian

BECCA: After FIVE unexcused absences in a 30 day period or TEN unexcused absences in a school year it is the responsibility of the school by state law to file the Truancy Petition.

Absence: Parents/guardians may call the attendance office 24 hours a day to report or excuse students’ absence. If leaving a message, clearly state your student’s name, your relationship to the student, date(s) of absence and reason(s) for absence. Students may also give the Attendance Office a written note (from parent/guardian) with the same information signed by a parent/guardian. A parent/guardian may also email the Attendance Office - ridgetopattendance@cksd.wednet.edu

We have a callout system that places a call in the evening to the homes of students who have missed 1 or more classes during the day.
