Report an Absence
Students are expected to attend all assigned classes each day. It is important that you contact the attendance secretary within 72 hours whenever your student will be absent from school.
Prearranged Absence Request (3 or more days)
Information from the Attendance Office
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! Since this is our first full year in this building I wanted to establish some attendance protocol.
Please email me at email@example.com or ILHSattendance@nsd.org if your student is staying home for the day.
Our doors will be locked during the school day. This is for everyone’s security. There is a doorbell to the left of the front door if someone is not visible. Please press and briefly hold to make it ring inside. The doorbell is a little finicky, you may need to try more than once if someone does not appear in a reasonable amount of time.
If your student needs to leave early, please call or email me. I am trying to have the kids advocate for themselves by coming to the lobby on their own at the appointed time. There is an IPad for them to sign themselves out if you have contacted me in advance. Otherwise, there is a clipboard on the front desk for you to sign them out.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I apologize in advance if we need to change something that doesn’t seem to be working.

Student Success & What Parents Can Do to Help
Innovation Lab High School wants your student to be successful! Parents and guardians can help their student by promoting and encouraging regular, punctual attendance.
Every effort will be made to record attendance notifications received by 2:30 PM throughout the school week. Notifications received after 2:30 PM will be recorded the next school day. Parents and guardians can view attendance by logging in to ParentVUE.
What parents can do to help:
Certain attendance practices completed throughout the school year by parents/guardians (and students themselves) will help a great deal as students near the end of the grading period and face attendance appeals:
- Parents/guardians contacting Attendance at ILHSattendance@nsd.org within two school days of any absences and indicate the reason for the absence.
- Maintaining a record of absences and the reasons on a calendar throughout the school year.
- Providing doctor's notes for medical, dental or orthodontic visits as they happen during the school year.
Following up immediately when a student has been absent is important and helpful to all parties.
We are here to help! Please contact us at ILHSattendance@nsd.org if you have any questions about our policy or your student's attendance.
8:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Upon request, a copy of a student's attendance profile can be obtained from the Attendance Office.
The profile identifies the dates and periods a student has missed school and indicates whether or not an absence has been excused.
