High School Attendance
Attendance is critical to student success at Odyssey Charter High School. There are two components to attendance at Odyssey: (1) attendance in-person at least once per week for your assigned 4-hour classes AND (2) logging in to the Moodle learning management system daily or as needed to maintain passing grades at all times. Parents/Guardians and students both have a responsibility for ensuring students are meeting all components of attendance.
Odyssey Charter High School requires notification within 24 hours when a student is absent from their in-person class.
PARENTS/GUARDIANS: The parent/guardian must notify the Attendance Clerk within 24 hours of the absence. Per OCHS policy, we prefer our students attend a make-up day rather than have an absence on their attendance record. You can provide an absence note by clicking the button below and completing the form. Your student can provide their medical or other documentation when they return to campus, or you can fax it to: 702-312-3260, or email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, the Attendance Clerk, Molly Patterson, can be reached at 702-257-0578 x5537. Thanks!
STUDENTS: Whenever a student is absent, they must notify the Attendance Intervention Specialist within 24 hours of the absence. Students should copy & paste their overview and email it to: email@example.com. Or, click the button below to fill out the form and copy & paste your overview into the box at the bottom. Students – once you have received a response from the Attendance Intervention Specialist you MUST REPLY TO THE EMAIL ACKNOWLEDGING YOU RECEIVED IT within 24 hours of the email. Please check your email the day after clicking that button!
For long-term or pre-arranged absences, please make an appointment with our Attendance Intervention Specialist, Kimberly McClain, at 702-257-0578 x5504 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
