Attendance

When your student is absent, there is no need to call the school. You must however notify your child’s teacher in writing (Doctor’s note, appt. confirmation, signed parent note) upon return as to the nature of the absence. You may call the school when your child will be absent, but this WILL NOT EXCUSE them. For a list of excused and unexcused absence refer to the APS Student Handbook.

If your child arrives late to school, you must come with your child directly to the office to sign them in and provide any written documentation.

Regular attendance will help your child learn and retain knowledge and skills.  However, a sick child should be kept at home.  After 2 unexcused absences, a call from the teachers and a letter will be mailed to parents.  After 7 unexcused absences, parents will be required to attend an a meeting at the school, and after 10 unexcused absences parents will be referred to the Court Liaison Officer for APS.  The New Mexico Compulsory School Attendance Act requires your child to attend school regularly.  Excessive absences can result in recommendation for retention and/or legal action.  After 10 absences a child will be referred for legal action.
