Student Pickup Procedures
When a student is absent, email a note explaining an absence. Parents please email the note by the next day to email@example.com or turn the note in the next day to the attendance box on the counter in the front office.
All unexcused absences count in the total to be put on the EXCESSIVE ATTENDENCE LIST. Excused, Medical, Judicial, or death in the family does not count in the total. Students are expected to follow their schedules and attend every day. Students must be present during the school day to participate in any after school activities. See the student Code of Conduct for the district rules of school attendance. It is the student’s responsibility to know and abide by these rules. Parental notes may explain an absence but do not guarantee excusing the absence. Call Diane Daly for a copy of attendance reports at (727) 774-7247.
Attendance correlates directly to effective performance in school.
Attendance is now recorded online using eSembler. The classroom teacher marks the student absent. The absence is automatically unexcused. The absence will remain unexcused unless the student completes the appropriate procedure to have the absence changed to excused. Students and parents are encouraged to set up accounts and monitor attendance in eSembler.
