Attendance

Attendance Matters

School attendance is required by law and is critical to students’ success in school and life. Research shows that children who miss 20 or more days of school in a given school year are less likely to graduate from high school. Missing even two days a month adds up to 20 days a year. 

We want to help ensure that every student has strong attendance every year. Please visit the Oak Harbor Public Schools board policy 3122 and procedure 3122P regarding excused and unexcused absences.

A tool to help parents track attendance and grades is the Family Access program in Skyward. Contact the front office of the school your child attends for instructions on signing in and using the system.

Parents must request that an absence be excused within 2 school days by calling, writing a note or sending an email.  
 

EXTENDED ABSENCES

If you have travel planned ahead of time that exceeds 2 school days, please notify the office via note or email at least three (3) days prior to the absence to arrange a contract. 
The principal reserves the right to not excuse an absence that will have a serious adverse effect on the student’s educational progress.
