Attendance Matters!

Reporting a student absence

  • The HHS Attendance Line is available and accessible 24 hours a day.
  • Please call the Hamilton High School Attendance Line at (262) 246-1800 to report the absence.
  • Clearly state and spell your student’s name, state grade, reason for absence and your relationship to the student.
  • School policy requires all students to turn in a written note to Office A signed by the parent/guardian within 48 hours of the student’s return to school. Be sure to have your student’s name and grade on the note.
    NOTE: Please do not leave messages for students to leave school during the day on the Attendance Line.

Homework requests

  • Your student may check Infinite Campus for their homework.
  • If unable to access Infinite Campus you may call the attendance line. All homework requests must be received by 10 a.m.
  • All homework requested can be picked up from 3 – 6 p.m. outside of Office A.

Leaving school for any reason

  • Please send a note with your student stating the time your student needs to leave and the reason.
  • Students should turn in the note to Office A prior to first block.
  • A Leave School Permit will be issued to your student.
    Doctor, dentist or court verification may be required for excused Leave School Permits.
  • If the student is returning to school after the appointment, etc, please have your student report to the attendance office to get a pass to class.

Students leaving school without a permit will be considered truant.

College visits

  • Please fill out and sign the College/Campus Visitation Form.
  • Return the form to Office A once completed. We will make a copy of the form and return the original to the student.
  • Students will then take the form to the college and have it signed and dated.
  • Upon return to school, the signed form should be dropped off in Office A.

Vacation requests

  • Family Vacation Request Forms must be completed by the student and signed by the parent or guardian as well as each of the student’s teachers.
  • Please submit the completed form to Office A for the principal’s approval and signature 10 days prior to the vacation.

Students are responsible for arranging appropriate make-up work for the time they will be absent from school.
