• Wilson Attendance

    Wilson Attendance Line: 602-683-2500 opt. 1

    Regular attendance and being on time are critical in the learning process as both help the students to develop a good attitude toward school. Absences and tardiness are upsetting for students as these disrupt their schedules, require readjustment to the class routine, and slow down learning process. Parents/Guardians are responsible for contacting the school if a child will be absent that day. 

    When reporting an absence, please call and specify the reason for the absenes such as colds, flu, etc. If the school is not notified early in the morning on the attendance line, the school will attempt to contact the parent/guardian. If your child is absent for any reason, please report the absence on the school attendance line option 1. Voicemail is available 24 hours a day. For an absence to be excused it must be reported in advance or the day of the absence. Parents are required to keep phone numbers up to date. 

    Students with 5 or more absences may be required to present a doctor's note in order to qualify for an "excused" absence. After 10 absences, a doctor's note is required for any absence to be excused. Arizona State Law says that students can only miss 10% of the days enrolled per school year. If your student(s) go beyond that limit, your family will be referred to Maricopa County Juvenile Probation Department. To encourage and improve school attendance, Wilson primary School will be implementing a truancy program in partnership with Maricopa Juvenile Court called C.U.T.S. (Court Unified Truancy Suppression). When a student has 5 or more unexcused absences or 19 excessive absences (excused or unexcused), the student can be cited to the C.U.T.S. Program through the Juvenile Court. 

    Students are tardy if they are not sitting in their seat at 8:00 AM. Tardy students are required to go to the front office to obstain a tardy pass.

    Absences are excused for:

    • Illness- Dr. note is required after 3 consecutive sick days
    • Bereavement - up to 3 days
    • Dr. Appt with a note - 1 day
    • Religious Holiday
