School Messenger Automated Attendance Calls

District wide we have a new school messenger system that will call when your student is absent for a period or the entire school day. This communication is to ensure both school and home know the whereabouts of our students. Attendance matters....every class period and every school day counts. Please note that if your student is not in class when attendance is taken and subsequently is marked absent, you will receive an automated call. If your student returns to class with a pass (because of a meeting, with a teacher/guidance counselor/administrator or potential other excused reason), these absences will be rectified when the teacher has a moment to update the absent. However, there are times when an absent call will occur before the teacher rectifies the attendance. Our intent is to keep communication open and most certainly not to provide inaccurate attendance calls. If we can clarify any attendance call, please feel free to call the attendance line at 329-6608.
