LKMS' Attendance Reporting Procedures

Absence Reporting School **NEW** Email:  LKMSabsence@hcpss.org

  • This mailbox will be monitored during school hours for the purpose of receiving absence notes from home; parents providing physician's notes, late arrival, and early dismissal notes.  
  • 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. 
  • NOTE:  Parents are automatically opted in to receiving email notifications when students are marked absent or tardy, however, you may opt out when you complete the Family File. If you would like to opt out, you may edit the Family File through HCPSS Connect.
