Sevier Middle School
Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find helpful information for your attendance concerns.
Procedure for Absences
Please remember that upon returning to school after an absence, the student must bring a note to the front office upon arrival to school. The note should contain the following:
Student’s full name
Date(s) of absence
Reason for absence
Parent or guardian’s signature

Regular school attendance and academic success are connected.
Regular attendance and arriving to school on time are very important to a student’s success in school.
Excessive absenteeism hurts the student.
Students with repeated absences not only often fall behind academically, but these students also miss out on important socialization skills and concepts that enhance their ability to understand and follow directions.
One missed day of school is equivalent to as many as three days of catch up.
Students are given an allowance of days for make-up work; however, within in this framework of time, a child may struggle to learn all the missed material and information.
Parents, I strongly encourage you to view the Attendance Regulations outlined in your child’s agenda. You will find detailed information of attendance requirements and procedures. I look forward to a successful school year!
Please feel free to contact the Attendance Office for any further questions or concerns.
