Attendance Procedures


Students who have been absent should bring a note to the Jones attendance office for a blue slip between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Failure to obtain a blue slip before 8:30 a.m. will result in the student being counted as tardy. The note should contain the following information:

  1. Student’s name

  2. Date(s) of absences

  3. Reason for absences

  4. Signature of parent/guardian

  5. Phone number where a parent can be reached.

Students who have a doctor’s appointment during the day need to bring a note to the attendance before school. Students will then be given a permission slip to leave class at the appropriate time. It is sometimes necessary for the attendance office to contact the parent/guardian for important information regarding attendance. Please be sure your student’s address, telephone number and guardian information are updated when there is a change. Parents may not request to remove a student from class to be picked up after 3:10 unless there is an emergency.


NOTE: Please refer to the District policies on attendance in the following section of this handbook.
