Attendace Announcements



Welcome Back! School attendance is a key factor for keeping students on track academically. Humboldt recognize that in order for your child to be successful in school, we will need support from both the home and school. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she attends school every day and on time. School begins promptly at 8:30 am and dismisses at 3:00pm


Attendance Procedures:

  • Tardy to School: Students arriving to school after 8:30 a.m. are required to bring a note from a parent/guardian, stating the reason for their tardiness.


  • Absences: Students absent from school one or more days. Parents/guardians are required to call the school Attendance Line (651-744-5533) to report a student absent. Also, parent/guardian needs to send a note with child stating the reason for the absence.

  • Excused to leave the building: Students needing to leave school early must provide a written note from parent/guardian with the following information, date, time needing to leave, parent/guardian telephone number, and the reason for early dismissal. Students will then be given an excuse to leave the building. If a student fails to provide a signed note from parent, the school staff has been instructed to check a photo ID and the emergency contact information to insure authorization before releasing the student. Parents PLEASE limit early pickups; students need every minute of their education to be successful in school.

  • Excused Absences and Tardies include: Doctor’s Visit, Sickness, Religious Holiday, and Extreme Family Emergency.

  • Unexcused Absences and Tardies include: Overslept, Missed the Bus, Car Problems, Traffic, Needed at Home, Cold Weather, and Staying Home to Babysit.

For additional questions concerning attendance, please contact the Attendance Clerk, Miss Nina (651)744 -7203 or Attendance Intervention Specialist, Ms. Judy (651)744-5547.
