Attendance


Welcome to the Attendance Page at GPHS.
 

There are a few things you need to be aware of.  This information comes from the STUDENT - PARENT HANDBOOK.
From page 14:
    Parent's Note after an Absence
When a student must be absent from school, the student - upon returning to school - must bring a note signed by the parent that describes the reason for the absence.  A note signed by the student, even with the parent's permission, will not be accepted unless the student is 18 or older.  Parent notes will not be accepted beyond five days of the student's return.  Only nine parent excuse notes will be accepted throughout the school year.

    Doctor's Note after an Absence for Illness
A Doctor's note will be accepted within five school days after the student's return to school.

Should the student develop a questionable pattern of absences, the principal or attendance committee may require a statement from a doctor or health clinic verifying the illness or condition that caused the student's absence from school.
[See policy FEC(LOCAL).]

Other Helpful Information:
    Driver License Attendance Verification (VOE)
Students needing to renew their driver's license or getting a permit MUST obtain a Verification of Attendance form from the Attendance Office.  Please sign up in the attendance office and the form will be ready by the end of the day that it was requested.
Students must be in compliance with the attendance policy to obtain this form.
