HOW TO CLEAR YOUR STUDENT'S ABSENCES
When a student is absent, the parent or guardian must call the appropriate alpha center and leave a message on the attendance tape. Only telephone calls are accepted to clear absences.
- Written notes are not accepted.
- Absences not cleared within three days will automatically become truant.
- The school's automatic dialing system will call home on all uncleared absences.
- Saturday detention or other detention may be assigned for truancies.
