Per Student Handbook
All absences are closely monitored at PAPA. An attempt will be made to investigate unexplained absences. However, attendance is the responsibility of parents and students. Providing documentation to excuse absences is the responsibility of parents and students. All documentation must be provided within 3 days of the absence. Excessive, unexcused absences may be reported to the appropriate state agencies for possible parent prosecution.
PAPA is a school of choice where attendance is critical in order for a student to be successful. Therefore, when the choice is made to attend PAPA, the choice is made to follow the New Mexico Compulsory School Attendance Law requiring that all students be in attendance while school is in session. School begins at 7:55a.m.
Traffic is not generally an excusable reason for tardiness. As a “commuter school” parents and students need to adjust their time for travel if there is difficulty arriving by the start time.
Illness involves fever, diarrhea, vomiting, etc. are reasons to miss school. If your child is not experiencing this type of issue, there is no reason to claim an illness. Parents are encouraged to monitor student attendance through the PowerSchool system. Parents and students will receive a PowerSchool username and password during registration.
In the event of a necessary absence, parents are required to call the school and leave a message on the attendance line by 8:00 a.m. (505) 830-3128, ext. 5 or e-mail the attendance account at firstname.lastname@example.org. If it is not possible to give prior notice by phone or e-mail, the parent/guardian must provide the school office with a written explanation of the absence upon the student’s return to school. If this does not occur, the absence will be considered unexcused. A doctor/dentist note or court document must be provided to the school attendance clerk as soon as the student returns in order to excuse such absences. Excused absences include doctor/dentist appointments, court appearance, religious reasons, illness, family emergency, and bereavement. Excessive absence (particularly for parent call-ins for illness without medical documentation) may require the approval of the executive director to excuse future absences. Vacations are not considered excused absences. Tardies in excess of 15 minutes are considered an absence for that class period.
Calls for absences will be updated within 24 hours.
