SAOA Student Attendance Procedures

October 20th, 2020

All students must log in and answer the specified question in Schoology for their 5th Block between 7:00 and 7:40 AM daily. Logging in after 7:40 AM automatically generates an unexcused absence.

  • Parents have three (3) school days to send an excuse e-mail to
    • If your student logs their attendance in Schoology late (past the daily 7:40 AM deadline), e-mail* with the time he/she signed in, for the absence to be changed to an excused tardy or half-day.
  • After three (3) days, the absence will be declared unexcused (unlawful if under the age of 18) if a communication is not received from the parent.
  • Zero (0) grades will be issued on unexcused days.

If your student was late signing in, please be sure your excuse e-mail indicates the time he/she signed in late.
