Attendance is a critical part of a student academic success. There is no substitute for being in class to learn and grow intellectually. Consistent attendance is expected at Salpointe Catholic and it is important to keep an accurate and up-to-date attendance record for each student.

Please put our attendance number, 327-1990, in the contact list of your cell phone. This will allow your caller ID to identify that you are receiving a call from the Salpointe Catholic Attendance Office.

For the safety of our students, only the parent/guardian or emergency contacts can excuse or release students from school. Please review the following information regarding absences, late arrivals and early dismissals:

List of 5 items.

  • Attendance Policy

    Absent or Tardy?
    Students are considered absent from class when they arrive fifteen (15) or more minutes after the final class bell. Students who arrive 14 minutes or less after the final class bell are considered tardy.   
    What are considered to be School Related Absences?
    Authorized field trips, AIA sanctioned athletic events, Kairos or other school-sponsored club outings are considered school related absences and do not count against the total of twelve (12) allowed non-school related absences.

    What are considered to be Non-School Related Absences?

    Non-school related absences include doctor appointments, illnesses, college visits, family trips, etc. Parents/guardians are responsible for using personal discretion as to how absences are used. If contact is not made with the Attendance Office regarding the absence of a student, the student may be considered truant and face additional disciplinary consequences. All non-school related absences count toward the total of twelve (12) allowed each semester.
  • Illness During the School Day

    Students who become ill during the school day must get permission from their teacher to report to the Nurse's Office. The nurse will assist the student and make the appropriate arrangements to leave school early, if necessary. 
  • Closed Campus Policy

    Salpointe Catholic is a closed campus. No student is allowed off school grounds while school is in session, unless he/she has checked out through the Attendance/Deans Office with appropriate parental permission.
  • Emergencies

    In the event of a lockdown, shelter-in-place or other emergency event during the school day, notifications will be sent via the school's emergency communications system, ParentSquare.

    Please do not call or visit the school for information, since that may hinder emergency communications and operations. Salpointe Catholic will continue to communicate via ParentSquare until any emergency situation is resolved.
  • School Cancellation

    Although rare, if weather conditions or other situations require the cancellation of school, notifications will be sent via the school's emergency communications system, ParentSquare.
