General Attendance Information
A Parent or Guardian is to notify the MASH Attendance Secretary the morning of a student’s absence prior to 9 am. This can be done by emailing the Attendance Secretary at email@example.com or by calling the Attendance Secretary at 717-691-4542.
Please include your student’s first and last name, the date(s) of absence(s), and the reason for the absence(s).
If calling, a written note must be received within 3 days of the student’s absence to deem the absence “Excused”. Again, an email can serve as a “written note”, as well as the Standard Excuse Blank available under the Attendance Form Link on this page or a hand written note from home.
Any student who is absent from school for three or more consecutive days is required to submit a doctor’s excuse to confirm the illness.
Please Note: Absence due to driver’s test will be deemed unexcused.
Additional specific details regarding student attendance can be found in the MASH Student Handbook, pages 27 – 30.
