Attendance

Valuable instructional time is missed each time your child is absent, and excessive absences may hinder your child’s progress. We are committed to providing the best possible education for your child. Regrettably, this process is adversely affected by poor attendance. Please help us by making school attendance a priority. Remember, we are here to assist you and answer any questions. Students are considered chronically absent when they have missed ten percent of the scheduled school days; the Qualters Middle School is committed to reaching out to the families/ guardians of chronically absent students to help implement a plan to improve attendance. Students who are chronically absent are typically at a higher risk of dropping out of high school, retention, or summer school. These are all situations we strive to avoid.  
“What If…” 

What if...my child is absent and is missing work? Encourage your child to speak each of their teachers once they return to get any missing notes and/or assignments. Also, encourage your student to create a plan or schedule to make up any missing assessments with their teachers. Each classroom teacher may have a routine or procedure in place for students. Your child should communicate with their teachers directly if they have questions about specific routines.  What if...my child is absent for several days and wants to complete work at home? After a student has been absent for two or more days, parents/guardians may request work for their children. Requests for work are to be made by calling the main office before 8:00 am and work will the available for pickup starting at 1:00pm.
