    Quick Tips for Successfully Checking In on Daily Attendance – Student Portal

    Missed Check-In?

    Students must check-in for attendance every day during the week (including Wednesdays) between 7:30am-11:00pm. District procedures will allow a parent/guardian to send notification to the school for a missed check in. Notification must be received within 7 days of the missed check in.  After 7 days, Mr. Sanders will have to review for approval. (Note: Notification must come from a parent/guardian from the parent/guardian email. Students that are 18 can send their own notification.) 

    The District has set up a dedicated attendance email address and phone number.  Both should be used for all notifications, out ill, college visit, etc.  Documentation can also be sent to the attendance email.

    Please find below the information on how to schedule a conference and how to attend a conference.  The slides also include a message from our CAHS Family Ambassador and our FoCAHS PTA.  On the evening of conferences, you will find a message from CAHS Administration within the slides.

    As always, we appreciate your patience as we will attempt a first, Virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences.  I attached within the slideshow a google document that you can use to organize the scheduling of your conferences the needed Zoom Links as well as a video to walk you through the scheduling process.
