The Braswell Attendance Office has gone paperless.

If you need to submit a parent or a medical note you must use our NEW attendance link. We will not be taking emails or paper copies of notes. Please submit using the link below.


Please remember a parent/guardian (or emergency contact on your sign out list) must come to the office, show Identification and sign a student out of school if they are leaving campus early. Students who leave without signing out could face campus discipline or truancy reporting for leaving campus without permission. All notes for early dismissal should be submitted by the parent/guardian online through the attendance note portal on the Braswell website

EARLY DISMISSAL If you are signing your student out of school early for any reason, please come to the office, show your identification, and the office staff will call your student out of school. Please make sure you are sending documentation for the absence to the attendance office through the online link. All documentation should be submitted through the link as the attendance office is paperless now. The exception to this is if your student drives themselves to school. In that case, please provide a handwritten and signed note from the parent/guardian to the attendance office before the start of the day that says the students name, ID#, time needing to be released and reason needing to be released and the attendance office will provide a release note for teachers and office staff. Students will still need to sign out at the computer in the office. Remember to still submit documentation (doctors note, DPS, etc.) for the early release to the attendance online link. Please remember the office can NOT release a student via phone call or email.


If a student arrives on campus late for school they must sign in on the computer in the front office upon arrival. Notes for that arrival should be submitted by the parent/guardian online through the attendance note portal on the Braswell website.


If your student is marked absent in a class period that you or your student believe is an error, please email the teacher or have your student speak with the teacher who marked the absence. That teacher is the only one who can adjust an error. (The teacher of record for the class is also responsible for substitute attendance in their classroom)


Attendance notes are coded on to a student's attendance within 72 hours of the submission online. Please be advised, attendance notes submitted without the needed documentation uploaded will be Unexcused (UNX) until documentation is received. Parent notes for absences (for an approved reason) need to be submitted within 3 school days of the absence in order for the absence to be excused. All attendance questions are addressed in the Attendance Matters section of the Braswell website.

My student did not receive credit for a course they took last year. How can this be corrected?

If your student passed a class with a 70 or higher average but did not receive course credit, it is likely due to attendance. Click HERE to learn more about Loss of Credit due to attendance.

Your student may earn credit for the class by completing a plan approved by the principal or campus attendance review committee which allows the student to fulfill the instructional requirements for the class. For more information, contact Mr. Smalley at

My student needs a VOE for a permit. How can they apply to get one?

Your student can request a VOE HERE.

Plan ahead, VOEs are not available on demand. It takes 72 business hours to receive a signed VOE after request. A VOE is good for only 30 days from the date of issuance.

Conditions of a VOE: A student has

(1) met minimum attendance for class credit (90 Percent Rule) in each class

(2) received credit for all courses taken in the previous semester, OR

(3) has complied with the conditions established by the school to receive this VOE form
