Attendance at KHS

To inform the school your child will be absent, tardy or dismissed early please email as follows:

STUDENTS WHO ARE ATTENDING IN PERSON LEARNING MUST ATTEND EVERY DAY.

Students who return to school must attend in-person school each day we are open.  The only reason an in-person student would be learning remotely is due to a medical quarantine, an exposure quarantine, or a pre-approved day (s) by an Administrator.  This request can be made to the School Counselor (860-779-6640) and he/she will request this directly with the Administrator.

Attendance Secretary – Tami Lupien 860-779-6627

1.      When a student is marked absent from class, it is because the teacher has set a clear expectation that the student should have been in person or logged into class.  If you are questioning this absence, please email or call the teacher directly. They can provide you with more detailed information.

If your Distance Learner student will be absent for the entire day, please contact the attendance secretary Mrs. Lupien at 860-779-6627 or khsabsence@killinglyschools.org  and let her know of your child’s absence.

2.      Distance Learners:  If your child is going to miss one or more classes but not the entire day of classes, please email the teachers and let them know that your child will not be attending those particular classes.

If your student needs to attend a dental or medical appointment and they are Distance Learning (meaning they are home and not physically at school) and will miss one or more classes, please email the note from your licensed medical professional along with the classes missed for this appointment to khsabsence@killinglyschools.org

Early Dismissals: (This only applies to students in school.  When distant learning please advise your teacher via email of an appointment and that you will not be in class)

Due to the current circumstances, we will not be accepting written notes for students dismissing early.  This information should be sent through khsearlydismissal@killinglyschools.org  prior to 10:00 am on the day of the dismissal.  Your student will dismiss through the front doors.  You do not need to sign them out in the Main Office. 

Tardies/Late Arrivals:

As always, students are encouraged to come to school on time each day.  If a student arrives tardy to school, they will need to sign in at the tardy table outside the main office.  They will then go to their advisory to pick up their shield.

Tardy notes will not be accepted in any form except email.  Please send all tardy excuses to khstardy@killinglyschools.org  

As you know, these are unprecedented times and we appreciate your understanding.
