Attendance

Attendance

According to Minnesota State law, children must attend school regularly. Please review the information below to ensure that your student's attendance is recorded properly.

Tardies

Period 1 (9:15 a.m. to 9:25 a.m.): If a student has a note or the tardy has been entered into Skyward to excuse a Period 1 tardy, they will need to sign-in at the attendance office. All other students should report directly to their Period 1 class. Students will be marked tardy if the tardiness is not excused.

Late to School (9:25 a.m. or later): If a student has a signed note from their parent/guardian, or the tardy has been entered into Skyward to excuse a late arrival, they will need to sign-in at the attendance office and receive a pass to class. If the parent/guardian has left a phone message, e-mail message, or has not made contact with the Attendance Office, the parent/guardian must escort the student to the Attendance Office and sign them in. The student will receive a pass to class.

Leaving school early

Students will need to turn in a signed note from their parent/guardian before Period 1 in the bin as they exit the cafeteria (outside the main office) or the parent/guardian must enter the request into Skyward. Students must sign-out at the Attendance Office before they leave the building. If the parent/guardian has left a phone message, e-mail message, or has not made contact with the Attendance Office, the parent/guardian must sign-out the student in the Attendance Office. Please note that students will only be released to a parent/guardian or an individual listed as an Emergency Contact within Skyward.

Absences: all periods

Parent/guardians must do one of the following for an excused absence: enter absence in Skyward, leave a voicemail on the Attendance Hotline (952-401-5310) or send a signed note. Please note that excused absences due to vacation or for personal family reasons, are limited to five school days per year.
