    What to do if...

    My student is absent?

    Please fill out the absence reporting form on the main page of the SILSA website. (please see link below)

    Scroll down under the photos and the form will be in the news section. 

    My student is tardy with an approved excuse? 

    Students should report to the SILSA office with the doctor's note; Parents must fill out the attendance form on the SILSA website. 

    My student is less than 30 minutes tardy unexcused? 

    Students should report directly to the front office, sign in and take the late slip to their teacher. The teacher will record the unexcused tardy. If more than 30 minutes tardy (or 1/3 of class-time), students will be counted absent.  If they submit a doctor's note, it will be an excused absence.

    My student needs to be dismissed early?  

    Parent must complete the attendance form on the website (see link below) with details regarding the early dismissal.
