ATTENDANCE FORM

CLICK LINK ABOVE TO FILL OUT OUR ATTENDANCE FORM. Every time your student is absence, a parent/guardian must report the absence to the school.

Reminder about Sick Students

We have had a record number of absent students the last week or two. Symptoms include some or all of the following:
  • sore throat
  • headache
  • tummy ache
  • slight fever


While restrictions surrounding Covid have been relaxed, there are many other reasons students become ill. The policy at Orchard Hill is that students should not be sent to school if they are not feeling well. We ask that you err on the side of caution and keep your student home so they do not get other students or staff sick.

Student Absences & Attendance Codes

During our distance learning model, and while students were out of school for Covid related reasons, the Oregon Dept. of Ed provided us the opportunity to use the attendance code “A” for Activity. The modified use of this code allowed students to do iReady (or packet work) from home and not be marked with an absence.


As attendance expectations return to normal, the use of the code will not be as readily available to us. We will be phasing it’s use out in the coming weeks.


Please continue to notify us when your child is out of school for any reason, and we will be happy to discuss the appropriate attendance code with you at the time of your call. You can call or fill out the Attendance Form (link below).
