    • Students should check into the attendance office when they arrive at school so their absence can be corrected.
    • They will then get a note to show that teacher that they have checked in.
    • If students do not check in with the attendance office, a phone call will go out to parents.

    If your student will be missing school for the day:

    • Please call the attendance line at 503-673-7602 and leave a message to excuse their absence.
    • The attendance office will update their attendance in the system so teachers will know that the student has been excused.
    • If the attendance office does not get a phone call from a parent (students cannot call in an excuse themselves) the absence will be unexcused. Parents will get a call.
    • Parents have 24 hours after the absence to call in or send a note in to excuse the absence.

    If you know your student will be missing more than one day of school ahead of time:

    • Please have your student stop by the attendance office at least two days ahead of the absence and pick up a Pre-Arranged Absence form
    • The student then takes this form around to all teachers to find out what they need to do to keep up with classwork while they are gone.  
    • Parents need to also sign the form. However, this can also be done by leaving a message on the attendance line 503-673-7602
    • Once the student has the form filled out, they bring it back to the attendance office.  It is a 2-part form.  The office keeps a copy and the student is given a copy. 

    If your student needs to leave school early:

    • Please send in a note or call the attendance line at 503-673-7602 first thing in the morning.
    • If your student brings in a note, have them stop by the attendance office and get a note excusing them from class.  We expect that students will keep track of time and, using the note that they have, leave class at the appropriate time to meet their ride.
    • Students should check out through the attendance office.
    • Parents can call from the parking lot to let us know they are here for pickup.  Please use this number 503-673-7603. Please do not call until you are in the parking lot.
