RMS Weekly Update

4/2/21

Attendance Line 586-281-1550

If your student will be absent, you will need to call the attendance line to verify their absence. Students will need to be verified even if they are remote learning. If your student is scheduled to be in person but will be attending remotely, please call the attendance line to verify that they will not be in the building.


The following attendance codes will be used:

  • No Code/Blank (means present)

  • VER (verified)

  • UNV (unverified)

In-Person Students: If your child is not in the building, he or she will be marked UNV even if the student is online. In order to change that code to VER, a parent or guardian will need to notify the office that the student is not reporting.

Remote Students: Remote students will be marked unverified if they are not in the Google Meet. Please contact the office in order to verify your student’s absence.
