SchoolMessenger Attendance Call Outs

There is an automated attendance call out to families of students who have been marked absent for one or more attendance periods. The initial call out at approximately 9 am (based on data pulled at approximately 8:30 am) will call the contacts of any elementary student who has been marked absent. An additional call out at approximately 10:25 am (based on data pulled at approximately 10 am) will call the contacts of any secondary student who has been marked absent for any attendance period of the day so far. The final call out at approximately 5:40 pm (based on data pulled at approximately 5 pm) will call the contacts of any secondary student who has been marked absent for any attendance period of the day excluding any students who were called in the morning. 

School administrators must ensure that calendar rotations are correct. Teachers will not be able to take attendance without the appropriate calendar rotation setup. All students need a schedule in Focus to allow a teacher to take attendance for the student (and interact with digital resources). Any subs in these classrooms won't be able to mark attendance and must submit that attendance to administrative staff in the schools to mark. Thank you for your assistance in getting attendance accurately marked on a daily basis.
