Welcome to the Hudson Middle School Attendance Page
All parent and guardian written requests to leave the building while school is in session, including the lunch period, must be cleared through the Attendance Office. Present this request to the attendance secretary before the start of school on the day the student is to be excused. This advance notice will reduce wait time. *Students leaving the building must be signed out and back in by parent/guardian at the Attendance Office. *Only exception: Student returning with a note from appointment - parent does not need to come in. Student must sign back in.
Advanced Absence Notice
When a student knows that he/she will be absent from school, he/she is required to pick up an advanced absence form from the Attendance Office. This form requires a parent signature, and a mutual agreement between the teachers and the student on an acceptable make-up due date validated by all of the student's teachers. This is then turned in to the attendance secretary. It is mutually understood that the sole responsibility for the completion of the advance absence notice and the make up of classroom work belongs to the student.
Tardiness to School
Parents must walk in to the Attendance Office when a student is tardy. Students are tardy to school if they are not in their homeroom at the tardy bell. The teacher will record all tardies on the absence sheet.
Consequences for Tardiness:
5 Tardies: referral to Unit Principal and one lunch detention.
10 Tardies: referral to Unit Principal and one afterschool detention.
15 Tardies: referral to Unit Principal and two afterschool detentions.
Excessive tardies may be referred to the Summit County truant officer.
