The adult student, or parent of minor students, will need to call the ALA attendance phone number at 480-362-2130 prior to 9 a.m. to report an absence.

If no one answers, a message can be left, as it has a 24-hour answering machine. Only calls to the front office secretary at this number will be considered.

To excuse an absence, adult students or parents/guardians of minor students MUST call prior to or on the day (by 9 a.m.) of the absence to the ALA Office telephone number. An e-mail may also be sent to the ALA Secretary; however, the same time frame must be used.

What is an absence?

Student attendance is taken by the teachers every 30 minutes. A student who misses 10 or more minutes during the 30 minute block is considered absent for the entire 30 minute block. Any student who has left campus without first signing out at the front office is also considered absent. All students shall be in class unless they are ill or otherwise excused.

What is an unexcused absence?

If an adult student or parent/guardian of a minor student does not notify the SRALA receptionist that the student is absent for an excused reason, the student is then considered as having an unexcused absence. Any adult student who leaves campus without first signing out at the front office and notifying the front receptionist of the reason for being off-campus is considered as having an unexcused absence.

Excusable reasons for absences?

  • Student is ill. (After 3 consecutive sick days, student must produce a valid doctor’s note prior to returning to class) 
  • Student has a medical/dental appointment that cannot be made before or after school
  • Death in the immediate family
  • Religious holiday
  • Student is actively participating in a cultural/ceremonial/traditional event

The front office makes the final decision on whether or not a student’s excuse is an excused or unexcused absence. Students are still responsible for completing all of their class work by the set class completion deadlines regardless if absences are excused or unexcused.
