Elementary schools take daily attendance and Secondary schools take attendance for every period. Absences and tardies are all recorded with reason codes that specify whether the absence or tardy is excused, or not excused.
To view attendance records:
1. Click Attendance.
2. At the top you see Summary Attendance for the Year, which shows you the total number of tardies and absences so far this school year.
3. You can see if the child was absent or tardy today in the Today’s Attendance section. Prince George’s County Public Schools does not take Hourly Attendance so that section is always blank.
4. The Absences This Year section shows you every absence record for the school year, including specific dates and the reason listed for the absence. Absences are marked Unexplained when there is no note sent in from the parent or caretaker.
5. The Tardies This Year section shows you every time the child was late for a class, including specific dates, the reason listed for the tardy, and the time the child actually arrived. Tardies are marked Unexplained when there is no note sent in from the parent or caretaker. Time Out means the child left the class before dismissal.
