Parents and Guardians may send notes for absences via email to LKMSAttendance@hcpss.org or send directly with your student to the Student Services Office. Notes from a physician's office should also be sent with your student to the Student Services Office.
Please read the information below regarding important LKMS Attendance procedures:
Late Arrivals - When students will be arriving after the tardy bell at 8:25 am, we ask parents/guardians to escort children into the office for sign-in.
Early Dismissals - When students leave during the school day, parents/guardians must come to the front office to sign out and pick up the student.
Early Dismissal Returns - When students return from an early dismissal, we ask that parents/guardians escort children into the office and sign them in with a return time.
Absences - The school must receive a note from the parent or physician explaining the absence/tardiness of a student within two school days of the student’s return or the absence/tardiness will be unlawful/unexcused.
HCPSS Attendance Policies and Procedures can be found here: https://www.hcpss.org/policies/9000/9010-attendance/.
For absences of up to 3 days per year, the Principal may determine whether the absences will be lawful/excused or unlawful/unexcused. Such absences may include, but are not limited to, the following events directly involving the student:
If your child will be out for any of the discretionary reasons listed above, complete and return the request form to Ms. Hill, Student Services Secretary, for Principal's approval.
