• NGHS Attendance Procedures

  • Check Out Procedures

    If you are checking a student out:

    Send a note in with the student or send an email to 725.attendanceoffice@gcpsk12.org stating when and for what purpose they need to leave.  Notes must include the student's full name, ID number, and parent signature and phone number. Students may drop checkout notes in the basket at the attendance desk in the morning.

    • If you have sent in a note:

    We will send your student a pass to leave at the designated time if it is during class. If the checkout time is during a class change, they will not require a pass and can simply report to the attendance desk.

    • If you do not send in a note:

    Please come in and show ID at the attendance desk.  We will get your student at that time.  This may take up to 15 minutes.

    *The last check out time is at 1:30pm*

    Students must always key in their number at the front desk when checking out and checking in.

    All checkouts are unexcused unless released from the clinic.

    Students must bring a note from the Doctor/Dentist or a parent (15 parent notes maximum per school year) in order for the absence to be excused.

  • Late Check In/ Absence Procedures

    Students are NOT permitted to return to school until they have been fever-free without the aid of fever reducing medication (Tylenol, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, etc.) for 24 hours.

    If you check in late, you must have a note from your parent or doctor with the reason listed.

    Excused reasons are illness, illness of family member, death in the family, observed religious holiday, and court. 

    If you go to a doctor, PLEASE bring a doctor note back.

    Students are allowed 15 parent written notes per school year.

    Unexcused absences: If a note is not submitted within 10 days of the absence, the absence will be regarded as unexcused. Parents will receive a letter from the county when a student has reached 5, 7, and 10 unexcused absences.
