From the 2016 'Incoming Freshman Parents' meeting:

Ten Things to Know About Attendance at EPHS:

1.  Students are not allowed to leave the building without a proper pass. Show the pass and sign out with Security at either the North, South, or East Doors.

2.   Students do not need a pass to come in to the building.  Simply sign in with Security and go to class.  Parents should call the attendance line for late arrival times.

3.  The automated attendance line is available 24/7.  Tell parents to call the night before to make sure your pass is ready.  Students pick up passes at Student Center South, show it to teacher, give it to Security and sign out.  Parents do not need to come in.   We will not call the class to dismiss you.

4.  Not feeling well during school?  Go to the Health Room.  Do not text your parents to come and get you.  The Health Room will do all the work while you take it easy.

5.  No notes are accepted at the high school.  Parents call the attendance line for all absences, late arrivals, and passes.  Parents have 48 hours to fix attendance issues.

6.  Students should talk directly to teachers if mistakenly marked absent. 

7.  Calls to the attendance line must be from a parent/guardian/adult in the student record.  Students are not allowed to call in any attendance.

8.  Attendance can be checked and reviewed on the parent portal.

9. The Handbook states that oversleeping and missing the bus are unexcused absences.

10.  Forgot something at home?  Small items can be left at Student Center South Reception.  Students will be paged during passing time.  Large items such as athletic bags and instruments should be left at the North Door.
