  • KHS Attendance Office Reminders

    All notes should be turned in prior to the start of the school day.

    All absences, early dismissals and late arrivals must have a written or emailed note to be considered excused. They can be emailed to both and or turned in with students upon arrival at school.  

    *All efforts should be made to provide a written note to the Attendance Office prior to first period. All students must sign-out in the Attendance Office. If a student is returning to school, they must sign back in.

    Phone calls for absences are not necessary, as ALL absences from school require written notification. Without written notification, they are considered unexcused absences.

  • How will teachers know whether students have excused or unexcused absences?

    Posted by:


    When students return from their absence, they can stop in the attendance office with their note and collect a pink slip for excused absences.

    This should be shown to each teacher so they can update their files accordingly.

  • If my child exceeds the 9/18 absences what should we do to obtain course credit?

    Posted by:


    If your child exceeds 9 absences for a half-year course, or 18 for a full-year course, they are eligible to have a credit appeal meeting. This allows them to make a plan with the teacher and school to make up the absences and earn credit.

    The form for credit appeal meetings is located below in the file library.
