Good attendance is key to your student being able to fulfill their potential and make good progress in school. One of the most important ways a parent can support the education of their child and the child's social, emotional, and academic development is to ensure they attend school daily, and on time.
MPH Attendance Procedures
Student attendance is recorded by teachers daily and in each class period.
Please call or email the MPH Attendance office within 5 school days to excuse your student's absence
*Students with excessive uncleared absences are subject to being referred to the MPH school site's School Attendance Review Team (SART). SART is a school attendance review team that collaborates together when a student has excessive unexcused absences and or tardies. The SART team meetings include students, parents, the Assistant Principal, and the Attendance Accountant. If resolution and improvement in student attendance are not able to be achieved following a SART meeting, further actions could be implemented including citations. Please call or email to excuse your student's absences to prevent any attendance interventions.
