Attendance Procedures


    • If your child is absent from or tardy to school, he/she will need a detailed excused note.  No child can be  checked out after 1:30 pm.

    Filling out and turning in the Archer Attendance Excuse Form will help ensure that the student's absence is properly coded in our records. 


    Pre-Arranged Student Absence Form


    Student check-out is through the Main Office and parents must show ID. Students will not be allowed to check-out after 1:30pm


    A parent or guardian of a student driver must fax or email the school a photo I.D. in order to check out a student driver during the school day.  



    All students are expected to be in school and/or class on time. This means being inside the classroom before the tardy bell begins to ringIf a student is not in the classroom on time, they should go directly to the Attendance Office, where a tardy slip will be issued. Students will be given a warning for the first three tardies. After the third unexcused tardy, students will be disciplined according to a heirarchy of consequences assigned by the administration.  Tardies are cumulative, and not totaled on a class-by-class basis.  Tardies are monitored per semester.

    No student will be admitted to a class after the bell rings without a yellow tardy slip or an admit form from an administrator, counselor, or clerical staff member.
