Please follow these procedures to report an absence:

Absence notes for excused absences are to be emailed to RHSabsence@hcpss.org. 

Discretionary absence requests must be completed and attached through email in advance of the absence.

Early Dismissals and Late Arrivals

Send an email to our Attendance Secretary, Ms. Allen, at RHSabsence@hcpss.org containing the student’s name, time, and reason for absence.

When picking up your student, we will need to verify your identity before releasing them to you. Please have identification ready.


From Policy 9010:

Students reporting late to school/class when the day/period begins are considered tardy. Leaving school/class before the day/period ends are considered early dismissal. School personnel will designate tardiness and early dismissal as lawful or unlawful and treat it under the same criteria as a lawful or an unlawful absence. Missing class for more than 20 minutes will be treated as an absence for that class. Missing class for more than 35 minutes of a 90-minute class will also be treated as an absence for that class.
