Welcome to Jordan Attendance

  • Official Attendance is taken at 9:35 AM                        

    **Remember to send in an excuse note anytime your child is absent.  Calling in a student absent does not excuse the absence--only a written note or e-mail from a parent/care provider will excuse the absence.  If the student spends some part of the day in school and he/she is out for a medical/dental appointment, a note from the care provider is required to excuse the absence. You can also click on this link; Jordan Attendance Form, to submit a form online.

     

    Ø  An absence is considered unexcused when a note is not provided within 3 days of returning from the absence.

    Ø  A doctor's note is required for any student that is signed out of school prior to 2:45.  Early sign outs for any other reason are considered unexcused.

    Ø  A student is allowed 9 absences per semester (18 per school year) in order to meet the Compulsory Attendance Law's 10% rule.  Absences over these amounts may result in loss of credit and/or grade retention.

    Ø  The tardy bell rings at 7:40 a.mStudents will be counted tardy if they are not in their seats by 7:40 a.m.  A student is allowed 3 unexcused tardies per semester.  Each subsequent tardy in a semester will result in the student serving lunch detention and a warning letter mailed to the parent(s).
