• Absence Procedures:

    If a student will not be in school on a particular day, the parent/guardian is requested to email the attendance clerk at hsattendance@umasd.org. 

    An absence note should be turned in the day they return to school.  All absences and latenesses are marked as unexcused unless a note is presented and/or a parent makes contact by telephone or email.  The student must submit these notes within three (3) days after their return  to school.  If a note is not received within three (3) days the absence will remain unlawful.

    Lateness:

    Four (4) unexcused latenesses will result in a detention or, if a student is 45 or more minutes late.

    Early Dismissal:

    If a student needs to leave early, a phone call from a parent and a note are required before the start of school that morning. We are unable to interrupt a classroom during school hours to notify a student of an early dismissal.
