School success goes hand in hand with attendance and is very important here at CMHS. Please note that all absences will be coded unexcused unless this form or appropriate documentation is submitted to the school. Absence notes must be submitted within two (2) school days of the student’s absence and/or return to school. Notes will NOT be accepted after TWO (2) school days of the student's return.
****IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU HAVE BEEN MARKED ABSENT IN ERROR, PLEASE REACH OUT TO THAT TEACHER****
*Automated calls from the County Office will be sent out if a student is marked absent or tardy in class*
Students who check in late or check out early (more than halfway through a period) will be marked tardy for the period.
**No check outs after 1:45pm**
*** Please allow at least 1 week for attendance coordinator to adjust attendance accordingly before resubmitting***
Please see the link for CCS School Board Attendance Policy online for reasons regarding the absence.
College Visits and any trips longer than 3 days
This form is different than the regular absence form and needs to be filled out instead of the form above if you are on an official college visit.
Educational opportunity (Request must be submitted to Mr. Crook for approval.) Form is found under Attendance Tab and reads Education Opportunity Form. Please note absences for personal trips are not excused according to state guidelines. *Educational Opportunity exceptions are typically only granted to students who will be absent due to travel directly related to academics.*
FORM MUST BE COMPLETED BY PARENT/GUARDIAN ONLY. Email address must match Parent/Guardian email in PowerSchool for the form to be honored.
**Please keep emergency contact information updated**
