Steele Canyon High School recognizes the relationship between positive student attendance and academic success. Steele Canyon expects students to attend regularly and punctually and encourages parents to actively support this behavior. Truancy and tardiness to school/class result in a loss of opportunity for maximum time on task, a decreased level of learning, and a disruption to others' learning processes. Students must be in class for at least 60 minutes in order to receive attendance credit. 

***Documentation may be required to excuse absences and tardies***

Synchronous and Asynchronous Attendance

Steele Canyon High School started the school year in distance learning and students are required to attend their synchronous sessions as outlined in the distance learning plan.  The distance learning plan may change over the course of the year as the public health order changes, but the basic premise of our attendance policy is that students must engage in learning daily and throughout the year.  We are required to track this daily engagement and will follow-up as needed with parents/guardians if students are not engaging.

Teachers must report attendance for students Monday-Friday.  All students have asynchronous work on Mondays that they must complete.

For off-campus passes only: 619-660-3533

In order to respond quicker to time sensitive off-campus passes, the attendance office has created a new, direct phone line specifically for that purpose. If your student needs to leave school during the day for any appointments or obligations, please call an hour in advance: 619-660-3533. Please continue to use your grade level attendance lines to clear absences or for other attendance issues. 

Thank you.
