According to Minnesota State law, children must attend school regularly. If your child will not be present for any portion of the school day; each absence must be reported by a parent or legal guardian to Minnetonka High School.

Attendance Reporting

Minnetonka High School will be transitioning from phone-based attendance reporting to web-based attendance reporting for the 2019-20 school year.

What exactly does this mean?
Families should plan to submit all attendance requests online through Skyward Family Access. Requests may be completed twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week via the “My SSO” portal.
