Attendance Reminder

Please remember to check your student’s PowerSchool for attendance-based NGs! The last day of Quarter 3 is March 23rd. Attendance School is held Monday through Thursday during lunch in room 151 ($2 per session). Parents can excuse full-day absences, or first period tardies within 10 school days of the date of the absence by calling the main office at (801) 235-9000 or emailing If your student arrives late to school, remember to call the front office, send a note, or send an email on the DAY OF the late arrival. We are not able to excuse partial day absences if they are not excused on the day of the late arrival or early check-out. If you take your child to the doctor, please remember to ask the doctor’s office for a medical note, which allows us to excuse your student’s absence with an M (medical absence) code. Medical absences are not counted toward NGs.
