School Policies and Procedures » Attendance


  • SSICP's Attendance goal is 95% for SY 2022-2023 and we will be tracking student attendance through ASPEN.
  • 3 or more tardies per week will result in a detention and a parent phone call.
  • Parents are encouraged to register for the CPS Parent Portal here which will allow parents to track student attendance and submit notes for excused absences via the new E-Absence function.



Absence Excused: 

Parents should email Ms. Waddell at [email protected] when a student is going to be absent for any reason; parents who cannot email should contact the Main Office. 

Unexcused Absences Protocol: 

  1. When a student is absent for more than 2 consecutive days, Ms. Waddell will make contact with family via phone/email. 
  2. Once contact is made Ms. Waddell will determine if additional supports are needed. 
  3. Security officers will also be available to make phone calls for students who are absent and have a pattern with no CPS valid reason for absence.
  4. 3 unexcused absences will result in Mr. Ramsey as well as the assigned mentor making a home visit.
  5. One week of unexcused absence will result in Mr. Ramsey routing the student's attendance to the CPS intervention team.
