Anytime that a student is going to be sick or will be missing school, the front office needs to be notified within 24 hours of the absence, preferrably the same day. You can call the attendance line, anytime day or night at 520-568-6110 ext 2401. You can also email our Attendance Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org. Not all reasons for an absence are excused by the state of Arizona, but please leave a reason for the absence along with the students name when calling or emailing so that we can mark it excused or unexcused.
Please try to schedule doctor, dentist and eye appointments on our early release Wednesdays, after school or during our breaks from school. The state of Arizona considers 5 or more unexcused absences as "habitually truant". When a student has missed 10% or 18 days of school, they are considered to have "excessive absences", whether they are excused or unexcused. According to the Arizona Revised Statues, Section 15-802, you or your child could be cited for violation of these education laws.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
