Please call or email as soon as you know your child will not be at school, or if your student will be arriving late or leaving early.
Automated Attendance Call Feature
We implement an automated attendance call feature for students in grades 9-12. The calls will come from JC Schools' notification system. Here’s how the feature works:
We hope this change will do two things:
- If your student is marked absent when attendance is taken at the start of 1st period/block, and you as his/her parent has not already notified the school attendance desk, a call will be placed at 9:20am to the primary cell phone on record for your student. That call will tell you that your child has not shown up for class that morning. You will then be instructed to contact the attendance desk and clear the absence.
- If your student’s absence has not been cleared by the end of the school day, another automated call will be made at 7:05pm to that same cell phone number. This call will detail the specific periods/blocks for which your student was absent. You will once again be instructed to contact the attendance desk and clear the absence.
1. Improve student attendance, and 2. Allow office staff in these buildings to use their time resources more effectively and efficiently.If you have questions about this new procedure, please contact the TJMS Attendance Desk at 659-3265 or by email at email@example.com. Feel free to also use this new email address to excuse your child's absences.If you want to make sure the primary cell phone number on your student’s profile is correct, please call the Counseling office at TJMS at 659-33268. And if you would like an additional guardian’s cell phone to receive these attendance calls, please call the JC Schools Communications Office at 659-3018.
