It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to correct any and 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 past or future 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)
Parents or Guardian:  Please give the following information:
Student’s legal name (please spell). No nicknames, please!
  • Grade
  • Reason for absence (failure to provide a reason will be marked as unexcused, we cannot assume the reason for an absence and use the first recorded reason.
  • Date(s) absence(s) 
  • Your name and relationship
If you are calling your student out of school due to illness, please state the reason for the absence and see "illness" page for further information.


  • All unverified absences not cleared within 48 hours will be considered as a cut and disciplinary action will be taken.
  • Students attempting to clear their own absences will be subject to disciplinary action.
  • Students who believe they were mistakenly marked absent must submit the Teacher Absent Clear Form within 2 school days of the disputed absence, parents cannot clear these absences with a phone call.

I followed the absence reporting procedure for my student.  Why am I getting an automated call regarding their absence?

Automated phone calls and email dialer messages for all unverified (uncleared) absences will be sent home to the primary parent’s home every day at 10:30 am. and 6:00 p.m. Due to the new safety measures implemented by the District, you will receive a call/email until your student actually checks in. If you have already called in to let us know your student will be arriving late, you may disregard the message/email.
