Attendance Policy

Attendance Policy

If your child has been or will be absent, please call the school (541-744-6353) and speak with the attendance secretary.  Parents should call each day their child is absent.

Under Oregon law, a principal may excuse an absence if it is caused by the pupil’s sickness, the sickness of a member of the pupil’s family or an emergency.  The principal may also excused absences for other reasons where satisfactory arrangements are made in advance of the absence.  Prolonged absence could result in reduction of grades or loss of credit required for graduation.

Excused Absences:
Personal illness
Medical/dental appointment
Family Emergency


Fun Facts about Attendance

Please notify the Briggs office each day your student will be absent or tardy by calling the Attendance Hotline at 744-6353, by accompanying your child into school, or by a written note with the pertinent information. Be sure your child checks in and out through the office. It is critical that you contact the office and teachers in advance if you are going out of town.
