High School Attendance Hotline: 763.682.8181
This line is checked throughout the school day. Please leave messages here if your student is absent for the day, arriving late, or leaving early.
We understand that family schedules do not always mix easily with school schedules. If your student is late to school, we ask that the parent/guardian send them with a note or leave a message on the Attendance Hotline with a reason for the tardiness. Your student can sign themselves in. If your student needs to leave early during the school day, please call the Attendance Hotline or send them with a note in the morning. A blue pass will be made for them as a ticket out of their classroom and out of the building.
Regular daily attendance is important to school success. It is critical for students to have consistent attendance in order to be successful and have a positive learning experience. If your child is ill or must miss school, please call the school office/attendance line and leave a detailed message stating student name and reason for absence. School work missed during an absence must be made up. Parents will be contacted if an absence is not reported.
Excused & Unexcused Absences
The Board of Education defines the following reasons as excused absences: illness, religious observance, death of a family member or close relative, family emergency, or a medical, dental or mental health appointment that cannot be scheduled before or after the school day. Unexcused absences, such as missing the bus, oversleeping, or those that are not acknowledged by note, or telephone call, are subject to truancy procedures. When no excuse is presented to the school, the absence will be considered unexcused.
