MMS ATTENDANCE POLICY & PROCEDURES

     5. If your student is absent and staying at home for illness or another reason, there will be no guaranteed opportunity or requirement for the student to Zoom into the classes on those days. Zooming into the classroom is intended for online learners and those students quarantined, not necessarily for students who are absent for 1-3 days or those students whose families are going on vacation or heading out of town. Zooming into classes when absent from the classroom does not remove the absence from a student’s attendance record.

     6. If your doctor recommends testing for COVID-19, please know that your student will not be able to return to school until a negative test result is received and the result is provided in writing.

     7. If a student has symptoms and there is a known exposure to COVID-19, the student will be considered a “probable case” and should remain home for at least 10 days since symptom onset and be fever free without medication for 24 hours and other symptoms have improved.

     8.If absences extend beyond 3 days, the parent may contact the teacher or counselor to arrange for classroom / homework material to be provided and/or provide an opportunity to Zoom into the classroom. We ask that you give teachers or the counselor sufficient time to organize and plan for additional remote students.

Please also note in the event that a teacher is out for personal reasons with a sub and can not work that day(s), we are not asking our substitute teachers to run remote learning. Teachers will post an assignment to Schoology that is review or practice of content that was previously introduced, that both in-person and remote learners will be able to complete independently. No new content will be taught by a substitute teachers during these short teacher absences. In the event that a teacher may be out for multiple days and is able to work from home and remote into the classroom to teach, please know that we will encourage this.
