Attendance Reminder

Dr./Dentist/Ortho.  Notes

Make sure that Doctor’s notes are being brought to the Jr High office after the appointment or if your student has been sick.  That note will change that absence in Skyward from a parent excuse - AE to a doctor excuse - AD. Remember that students get 10 parent excused absences (AE) in a school year.  After 10 they will be considered unexcused (UU).  You can have your student bring in the note to the office or you can email the note to cjones@rochester3a.net .

Mental Health Days: you are allowed 5 mental health days in a school year, but those are also part of your 10 excused absences (AE) that were mentioned above.  If 10 absences have been taken, all absences going forward will be marked as unexcused unless there is a doctor’s note for that day.
