KiMS Attendance Procedures


Is your student going to be absent or late?

It is very important to please include the following in your message:

  • Student’s first and last name
  • Student’s grade
  • If late or leaving early – the time of arrival/early dismissal
  • Reason for the absence
    • Examples of EXCUSED absences: illness, medical appointments, family emergency, religious holiday, school-related field trips, pre-arranged absences (such as vacation or travel)
    • Examples of UNEXCUSED absences: overslept, missed bus, traffic, homework, forgot something, parent was running late


Is your student leaving early or do they have an appointment during the school day?

  • Have student bring a note to the main office before school – include student first and last name, grade, time, and reason for dismissal.
    • Student will receive an early release pass to get out of class early (to minimize disruption of learning, we do not call classrooms to dismiss students.) 
  • We understand things come up at the last minute. Please try to notify the attendance office at least one hour prior to departure or before you arrive at school. The more advance notice, the better!


To report an extended absence of 5 days or more:

  • Please complete the Pre-arranged Absence Form if your student will be missing five or more school days. The forms can be found online at the link above or in the main office. 
  • The form should be submitted preferably one week prior to the first day of the absence.
