The Scoop on Attendance!

Absence notes are to be turned in to the front office within 5 days of the absence, per Fulton County policy. All notes should have the student’s first and last name, grade, date(s) and reason for the absence.

If you receive an attendance notification regarding your student, please go to the Parent Portal on Infinite Campus to see which period(s) the student missed. If you have a question, please contact the teacher(s) for more information. If a correction to the attendance record is required, the teacher will notify the appropriate staff member. If the notification is regarding a full day of absence, please send a note to the front office within 5 days as described above.

Approved absences for travel opportunities or important family events must be pre-arranged PRIOR to the date(s) of the absence. Please contact the appropriate grade level Assistant Principal via email, requesting approval for the days your student will miss. These types of absences are limited to 6 days per school year and will not be approved “after the fact”.
