A change to student attendance notifications
May 3, 2012
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I know that this information was in the monthly newsletter which went out on Tuesday, but I want to make certain you are aware that we are changing our parent notification process when a student is absent from a morning class.
The new procedure is as follows:
1. Parents will receive an “Attendance Safety Message” email by 10 AM if the school has not been able to resolve a student absence by that time.
2. If a student absence is still unresolved by the end of the day, an additional attendance message will be sent via email and phone.
All schools will be using this process by Wednesday, May 9th.
We believe this is a step that will keep parents better informed and provide more security and safety for our students.
Thank you very much.
