Attendance - It's important! 520-327-1990
Attendance is an important part of a student’s success. Because of this, it is very important to have an accurate up-to-date attendance record for every student.
Salpointe recommends putting the attendance number 327-1990 in the contact list of your cell phone. This procedure will allow your caller ID to identify that you are receiving a call from Salpointe attendance.
For the safety of your student, only the parent/guardian or emergency contacts can excuse or release your student from school. By following these guidelines, the process of checking your student in or out of school should enable us to work together to achieve a positive attendance process. Please use the following information to notify Salpointe in regards to your student’s absence or tardiness:
If your student is absent, the parent/guardian should call the 24-hour attendance line immediately, but no later than 10 am at 327-1990. Your voice mail message should include your student’s full name, ID number, and the reason for the absence. Please include a return phone number.
All early dismissal requests will be retrieved from voicemail. The number to use for early dismissal requests is 327-1990 and select the early dismissal prompt. Only parent/guardian can request early dismissal.
Please be sure to give at least a two hour notice for your request to be processed in a timely manner.
Please notify us as soon as possible via voicemail with the reason your student will be late at 327-1990. Also, include the approximate time we should be expecting your student. Your student will receive a tardy when arriving to class within the 15 minute time frame. The only tardy that is excused is when a student arrives late from a doctor appointment. The student must submit a valid document from the doctor when they check in at the gates or office.
Please note that if your student arrives 15 minutes into the period it is considered an absence.
Salpointe has determined that the following absences will be considered school sanctioned absences: field trips, Days of Recollection, Kairos, Salpointe sports team activities, college visitation for upperclassmen (with pre-authorized paperwork turned in to the Attendance Office, Parent/Guardian still needs to call in the absence), and prolonged illness with physician documentation. Sanctioned absences are pre-scheduled and do not count in the 10-day absence limit. It is the student's responsibility to notify teachers in advance and make arrangements to complete all coursework.
Closed Campus Policy:
Salpointe has a closed campus. No student is allowed off the school grounds while school is in session unless he/she has checked out through the Attendance/Deans' Office with appropriate parental permission.
