Attendance Policies & Procedures
Reporting a Student's Absence:
Parents are required to call in to document their student's absence by 3:00 p.m. on the day the absence occurs. An automated phone call will be sent if a student is absent the first two periods of the day.
If a student will be arriving late, parents are required to call to document the reason and time the student will arrive.
If a student must leave early, parents are required to send a note with the student or call to document the reason and the time the student should be released. Notes should be brought to the Attendance Office prior to the student's first class. When a request is made by phone, please allow time for staff to coordinate the student's departure from class.
For Full Remote Learning Days:
During Full Remote Learning, attendance will be taken for each period by teachers. Attendance is not taken for study halls.
If a student will not be in attendance for virtual classes or is ill and unable to participate, a parent/guardian must call the Attendance Office to report the absence by 3:00 p.m. that day. When reporting an absence to the Attendance Office, please include information about your student’s symptoms. This will greatly help LTHS monitor the health of its student population.
Resource classes and Renewed Scholars are required to check in for attendance.
For In-person, Hybrid Learning Days:
