Attendance Procedures - Family/Home

Research shows that chronic absenteeism significantly impacts the quality of education a child receives and the likelihood that a student will drop out of high school. Our goal is that 100% of our students achieve and graduate. You can invest in your child’s education by ensuring they attend school daily and on time.


Parents/guardians must notify the school of the reason for their student’s absence on the day of absence or within the next 24 hours following the absence. You may be contacted to verify the absence.

Ways to notify the school of the absence:

● Phone call to the attendance line (608)361-361-3073 or (608)361-3009
● Skyward Family Access
● Email the attendance address
● Send a written note
● Visit the attendance secretary in person

Notification of student absence must include:

● Your name
● Your child’s name
● Date of absence
● Reason for absence
● A phone number at which you can be reached

Absences will be excused for student illness, significant family illness, or death in the family. Non-health related absence excuses or requests will be reviewed by the principal. Families are encouraged to make doctor and dentist appointments outside of school time, if possible. If your child needs to be released for an appointment, we ask that you send a note in the morning, enter the building at the pickup time to sign your child out of school, and return the child as soon as possible.

You may view your child’s attendance at any time using Skyward Family Access through the SDB website. To obtain your family access, contact your school office for account information and a user guide. Please report any errors in attendance reporting immediately to the attendance secretary.

Students who are unexcused or absent due to illness from school for the day or afternoon may not attend an after school or evening school event.

You will receive a phone call each day that your child is marked absent unexcused in a class or in school. Please call immediately to reconcile any errors.

You will receive a letter if your child has been absent unexcused all or part of two days. This is to communicate that we did not receive your notification or that your child may be missing class without your knowledge. Please call immediately to reconcile any errors.

District policy does not allow regular early dismissal by parent request.

When a student has been absent for part or all of five (5) or more days of school, the parent/guardian will be notified in writing. The letter will request a meeting between the parent/guardian and the principal to identify the barriers that are keeping the child out of school, and to agree upon strategies to increase the child’s attendance. If your child continues in a pattern of unexcused absences (truancy), there is a possibility that you or your child will be referred to the court for a truancy citation per state law. Students who meet the definition of “Habitual Truant” (students who have missed all or part of 5 days unexcused in a semester) may be subject to loss of school privileges and/or access to non-academic school events and activities based on the school’s attendance plan.

All students are expected to be on time for class. Do not bring your child to school before the time supervision is provided.
