Absence Procedures & Attendance Expectations


If you miss any portion of a school day, you must bring a note signed by a parent/guardian.


The Impact Center expects EXCELLENT attendance from all students. The school must be notified whenever the student is absent. It is the parent’s responsibility to contact the school at 268-8473 ext. 46140 before 9:30 a.m. on the day the student is absent. There is an answering machine at this number in order to give you the opportunity to call the night before the student is to be absent.

As per district student/parent handbook page 18, all absences will be recorded as unexcused until the student brings a note. Students have 3 school days after they return to bring the note to the office. After that period of time, the absence will remain unexcused. The student must bring a note upon their return. Absences may result in extending student’s assigned time. They will also forfeit 2 iguana credit days.

Impact Attendance time is 1:15 p.m. If students arrive after this time they will not be counted present.

If your student has a medical or court appointment, please call the school in advance and return the student to school as soon as possible after the appointment is completed. Parents will be contacted if student is not in attendance. Parents may also be contacted to verify any note for missed school days.
