11/10/2023 - To start, we thank you for completing your Attendance Logs for the last few weeks. For this week, you will notice that the total hours shown is only 20 hours. This is because Veterans day (Friday) does not require student hours. If your student(s) worked on Friday you can still add time to Friday.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
11/3/2023 - As we move into week 2 of using the Attendance App, guardians will receive notifications this afternoon once the logs are open for approval. A reminder that logs should be submitted every week.
If you have received notifications for missing logs, you can simply login to the attendance app and submit last weeks logs. In the top right hand corner of the app, select last weeks log, adjust time as needed and click approve.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Hope High Online, we are continually striving to improve our processes to provide the best possible education and support for our students. Due to increased differentiation for students, it has become difficult for us to maintain a high standard of attendance tracking and reporting. Our goal is to create a more efficient and accurate attendance reporting process that benefits the school, our students, and their families.
We will be transitioning to guardians submitting student attendance weekly via an easy-to-use attendance app. We will continue to review attendance data regularly so we are able to provide the necessary support to students who may be facing attendance challenges and promptly address attendance concerns.
Guardians will be receiving an email from our new attendance app with directions on how to activate your account. It is imperative you complete the process as soon as possible to ensure you are prepared for when this change takes effect. Please click here to access our attendance page where you can watch helpful videos to familiarize yourself with the new platform and review FAQ’s. This transition will be starting the week of 10/22/23. Guardians will receive notifications on 10/27/23 once the attendance log is open and ready for submission.
We appreciate your support and cooperation as we work together to improve the attendance process.
