Attendance Office

ABSENCE PROCEDURES

Punctuality and regular attendance are fundamental to good learning and good citizenship. Every absence results in an instructional loss to students and a financial loss to your school district. Students are held accountable for all assignments and lessons given during an absence.


Parents or Guardians are asked to call Hosler Middle School at the 24-hour attendance line the morning of a student’s absence. This will eliminate the need for a note and a readmit slip to class. Otherwise, when the student returns to school after an absence, he/she will need to report to the attendance office to clear his/her absence. He/she must have a note written and signed by the parent or guardian stating thedate, your relationship to student, and reason for the absence from school.

If a student is late to school, a note of verification from the parent or guardian must be given. Uncleared absences becometruancies.
