Attendance is the single-most important factor in determining academic achievement.

Please schedule appointments and family vacations outside of the school day.

The parent/guardian is expected to e-mail Foss Attendance on or before the day of the absence or send the office a note when student returns to school. The e-mail/note must include the student’s first and last name, the date(s) of absence, and the reason. An absence of 5 or more days requires a doctor’s note. 

An absence will be considered unexcused if the parent/guardian does not excuse the absence within two (2) days following the student’s return to school. The Becca process will be followed for unexcused absences.

All students are expected to attend regularly. Absenteeism may affect the final grade a student receives in any class. Guardians will be notified when students miss a class or entire school day and persistent attendance issues will result in interventions by guidance staff, administration, and possibly the court system.  

Please make sure your phone number and e-mail are up to date on our system.
