DISTANCE/ ONLINE LEARNING ABSENCES
Students are to communicate regularly with all teachers if they are having zoom or connectivity issues through Schoology or email. This will count as participation and will count towards their attendance.
If the teacher markes a student absent, you must email the teacher the same day as the supposed absence.
You can find the teacher emails listed here: https://www.chatsworthhs.org/apps/staff/
If a student misses a class meeting due to illness, doctor's appointment, dentist appointment, or other student appointments, the parent is to submit a typed note providing the reason and email the attendance office at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
**FYI** If your student is absent and you provided a note verifying the absence, the absence will reflect on the report card. The note will not get rid of the absence, however, will have a reason code in our attendance system.
The absence note must include:
- Student Name
- Date of Birth
- Date Absent
- Reason for Absence
- Parent Email
- Parent Name
- Parent Phone Number
**Per LAUSD policy, students have 10 days from the date of absence to submit the absence note to the attendance office. After 10 days it will not be updated on the student's record.
