We are excited to introduce the new Parent Portal Attendance Reporting System. This will make attendance reporting, tracking, and communications more convenient for you!

With this system you will be able to report all attendance through the parent portal. This will include:

  1. Daily absences
  2. Future absence reporting (ex: travel dates)

  3. Late arrivals with time specifications

  4. Early dismissals with time specifications

  5. A confirmation email of your reported attendance will be sent with each submission

  • It is Important to use a private email address that your students can’t access

In the parent portal you will be able to monitor and review all attendance information for your student. This will include:

  1. All parent portal reported attendance

  2. All letters/notifications sent by the school regarding attendance

  3. Interactive dashboard with graphs and charts for absences/tardies
