Attendance

Students will be expected to attend all periods Monday through Friday. Teachers will record attendance in PowerSchool in both academic and advisory periods. If your child is absent or requires a late “arrival” or early “dismissal” from school, please utilize the Safe Arrival system to communicate with our attendance secretary, Tedi Queroli. While an email to the teachers is always appreciated, the use of the Safe Arrival System is necessary to track attendance. Please use the link below for the form. https://www.lmsd.org/harritonhs/parent-info/attendance/absence-form

Advice to complete independent learning work

  • Make a plan - Identify where in your residence you work best; this place should minimize distractions.

  • Organize materials - Gather the materials and supplies that you will need to complete assignments.
  • Monitor the schedule - Make use of a timer or watch to help keep you on track.
  • Set alerts or reminders - Use a calendar or reminder app to schedule office hours or live lesson reminders so you don't miss out.
