📢 ~ Important Attendance Reminders ~

Unexcused Absences

If you are absent from school without your parents’ permission, your absence will be recorded as “unexcused.” Your parents will be notified of your truancy and you will be assigned before- or after-school detention to make up the time and work that you missed. Continued truancy from school will result in your being assigned additional consequences.

When Arriving to School Late

You will be marked late if you arrive after first period begins. If you arrive late to school, you must . . .

  • Go to the main office for an admit slip before going to class.

  • Give the secretary a written note from your parents, doctor, or dentist in order to be given an “excused” admit pass. If you do not have a written excuse, your lateness will be recorded as an “unexcused” absence from the period(s) you missed.

  • Take your admit slip to your teacher.

  • Find out what work you missed and make sure that you make it up.

For your convenience, click on the link https://www.familyid.com/organizations/north-lake-middle-school to register. Note: if you registered your student previously in FamilyID, please use the same account to register for a new sport so you don't have to fill out the entire registration again.

Your student(s) must also have ASB and you can purchase this online by visiting the NL website under Athletics and Clubs or come to the office and pay by cash, check, or card. The cost is $15.00 and if you have already purchased this, please disregard this reminder. Track is a non-cut sport. For additional questions, please reach out to coach Eacrett.
