What To Do If Your Student Is Absent

  1. Call your home high school's attendance line and report the absence
  2. Call the Aloha high school attendance line and report the absence - 503-356-2762
  3. To verify the absence has been marked as excused, email the program Office Assistant at

If the absence is not reported as excused to the Aloha high school attendance line, then the student will be marked unexcused absent in Auto Tech, even if their absence is excused at their home high school. The attendance lines for each school are separate and they do not share information.

If an absence is recorded incorrectly, please contact the program Office Assistant to help with any corrections.
