Attendance Policy for All Students Prior to In-Person Learning

 

Schoology Login Requirements

Each online student will be required to log in to Schoology daily to track their attendance, except in the case of illness or an emergency (A.R.S. § 15-901).

We understand that during these unprecedented times, parent schedules and traditional school hours may not complement each other. Students may log in to Schoology any time between the hours of 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. to complete their schoolwork each day. We do ask that your student at least logs in once a day for attendance purposes.

 

Reporting Student Absences

In the event that a student does not log in to Schoology, we ask that the parent or guardian call and leave a message providing the reason for the absence (non log in) on the school attendance voicemail or email the school attendance email account by 3 p.m. in order for an absence to be “excused.” Please note that an email to the classroom teacher will not suffice. Both the attendance voicemail and email accept messages 24 hours a day. Parents are welcome to call late in the evening or very early in the morning.

*Students who log in between 3 p.m. and 11:59 p.m. will be considered present and their unexcused absence will be adjusted at the end of the week.

Parents may call the front office for assistance if students are unable to log in to Schoology before 3 p.m.

Schoology Login Requirements

Each online student will be required to log in to Schoology daily to track their attendance, except in the case of illness or an emergency (A.R.S. § 15-901).

We understand that during these unprecedented times, parent schedules and traditional school hours may not complement each other. Students may log in to Schoology any time between the hours of 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. to complete their schoolwork each day. We do ask that your student at least logs in once a day for attendance purposes.

Parents are not required to have their students logged in at certain times and students may complete their work at their own pace throughout the week.

While online students will still be expected to login daily, Monday through Friday, to be considered present for attendance purposes, they may complete their weekly work between Monday and Sunday each week.

In order to help the school track attendance and instructional hours associated with each day of education provided, as well as to report it properly to the state, students will be assigned weekly schoolwork each Friday for the following week. The work is designed to meet the required hours from the state in order for each student to be considered full-time pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-901. The work is to be completed independently.

  • Teachers will post the weekly materials for their course by 4 p.m. the Friday prior to the start of that week.
  • Teachers will be available during their regularly scheduled contracted time, 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., to answer questions from students or parents. Within one school day, teachers will respond to any student or parent correspondence that takes place outside of working hours.
