Attendance & ISS Contact Information

Attendance Procedures

  • Attendance Procedures for 2022-2023 School Year

    Please read these attendance procedures carefully.  If you have any questions, please email Mr. Michael Scott (mscott@csdecatur.net).
     
    We hope that in the 2022-2023 school year, we can continue to improve student attendance as we continue to adjust to living with the constant presence of COVID-19.  If your student is having a hard time getting to school, please reach out to their counselor and administrator.  Contact info can be found here.
     
    Excused Absences
    If your student misses a day or more because of an illness, the death/illness of a family member, a religious holiday, or another excused reason, please fill out this form.  If you would like us to consider a non-standard reason to excuse an absence, please reach out directly to Mr. Scott at least three weeks in advance of a planned absence.
     
    Check-outs
    If you need to check out your student, please fill out this form.  We ask that all students be picked up from the front doors off of N. McDonough.  Please ring the buzzer for assistance and be prepared to show a photo ID to our attendance office staff.
     
    Timely Arrival to School
    In order to be considered on-time, a student must be in class by 8:35 am.  Students who do not meet this criterion must check in at the attendance office.  Students who are late two or more times in a week without an excuse will be assigned after-school detention on either Wednesday or Thursday (student's choice) of the following week.
     
    Skipping Class
    We expect students to be in every class every day.  Students who skip class will be referred to their administrator every time they skip.  This year, we will assign Saturday Detention to students on the third time they skip class.  Students with Saturday conflicts for religious reasons will be assigned an alternate consequence.
