High School Attendance

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.  Parents/Guardians and students both have a responsibility for ensuring students are meeting all components of attendance.

Odyssey Charter High School requires written notification when a student is absent from their assigned day. You can provide written notification through a parent note on the next assigned day, fax a note to 702-312-3260, or email a note to absent@odysseyk12.org.

PARENTS/GUARDIANS: Per OCHS policy, we prefer our students attend a make-up day rather than have an absence on their attendance record. Make-up days must be scheduled by phone at least 24 hours in advance.  All make ups will be at your student’s normal class time, to ensure the correct teachers.  Make ups must be completed before the students next class day. For questions on your students attendance, please contact the High School Attendance Monitor, Joann Melton at 702-257-0578 x5537.

For a long-term absence (greater than 2 weeks) please contact our High School Coordinator, Mike Fitzgerald, at 702-257-0578 x5566 or mfitzgerald@odysseyk12.org.
