 Riley Elementary School Attendance Information

Attendance Policy Change – Starting February 2, 2015

Reporting of an All-Day Absence

Regular and timely student attendance is vital to a student’s success. Prior to the winter break, a communication was sent out from LPS notifying parents that a change to reporting student absence would be taking place second semester.  Here are the details:


In the event of an all-day student absence, parents/guardians are responsible for contacting the school to verify the absence.  Student absences must be reported to the school by the end of the school day, on the date of the absence.  If the absence is not reported by a parent/guardian, the student absence will be considered unexcused. 


The following are directions indicating how this contact can be made.

To report an all-day absence:                                                

Courtesy attendance calls will continue to go out in the morning on the date of an absence.  If you receive a call and have already verified your child’s absence, please disregard the message. 


If your child is tardy or absent in the morning only, please continue to go into the school to check in your child for the remainder of the day.  This will serve as attendance verification for AM-only absences.  PM absences will be verified by the parent/guardian when the child is picked up from school. 


If you have any questions, please contact our school office at 734-744-2680.
