This is a recorder that is checked each morning and again in the afternoon. Depending on the volume of calls each day, it is possible that even though a parent has called, the District’s automated voice mail may still contact the home in the evening. It is not necessary to call the Cleveland attendance office again; the excused absence will be recorded. Parents must clear the absence within 3 days in order to have it excused, i.e., absent on September 1st must be cleared no later than September 4th.
An excused absence enables your student to have make-up work whereas an unexcused absence does not. Students need to talk with their teachers to see what work needs to be made up after an excused absence.
Athletes who miss a class may not practice or play in a contest on the day of the absence. The only exceptions are a pre-arranged medical appointment, which must be made 24 hours in advance of the day of participation, or an emergency. Parents of in-season athletes MUST call directly a vice principal (503-916-5120) or the athletic director, Mike Shanahan (503-916-5120 ext. 75031), to pre-arrange a medical appointment 24 hours in advance or to report an emergency.
