Parent participation is a critical element in encouraging good student attendance.  Here at South Middle School, we believe that parental involvement is an integral part of the success of our students.  Parents are encouraged to call school or email the attendance secretary prior to the start of the school day whenever their child is to be absent. Verification of an absence is not an excused absence. To obtain an excused absence, please provide either documentation from a medical professional or a funeral home stating that the student was at their practice during school hours.

The following attendance guidelines (linked below) for student absences have been implemented by our school district and are the guidelines that we follow.
