You can report your child’s absence by sending an email by 9:30 AM using the following address: WWEAttendance@carrollk12.org
Please use the WWEAttendance@carrollk12.org email to report any absences, late arrivals, early dismissals or changes in dismissal. Changes in dismissal should be sent, in writing, prior to 2:30 PM in order for office staff to notify teachers and students.
Teachers will provide any missed work to students upon their return to school.
Families are required to notify the principal for approval of any extended, planned student absences from school. Teachers may provide some information and materials as make-up for your child upon return to the classroom and a timeline for completion. Teachers are not required to provide work in advance of the absence nor assignments to be completed during the absence. Please consider these conditions carefully as you may plan any extended absences.
Attendance is recorded as follows:
Any student who is not in homeroom by 9:15 AM will be marked tardy (late arrival). Students departing school prior to 3:45 PM will be marked tardy (early dismissal).
For a full day of school (9:15 AM - 3:45 PM)
If a student attends less than 2 hours per day, he/she will be marked absent for the entire day
If a student attends 2 or more hours, but less than 4 hours, he/she will be marked absent for ½ of day
If a student attends school for 4 hours or more, he/she will be marked present for the entire day
For a modified school day (1:00 PM dismissal):
If a student attends less than 2 hours, he/she will be marked absent for entire day
If a student attends 2 hours or more, he/she will be marked present all day
Maryland State Department of Education has established a standard of 94% for regular daily attendance.
