McDowell Tech Back to Work Program
Please encourage your child to maintain good attendance.
Teachers take attendance each period so students still need to supply a note from their parents if they miss a period or two. Students have three days to bring in a note. Five parent notes will be accepted. After the five notes, students will need to bring a doctor's note; however, the administration will work with students when there are special circumstances. When students get six unexcused absences, they will need to stay for after school make up attendance. More information about after school makeup attendance will be sent home soon.
A way to check your child's attendance is through The Parent Portal. This informational system is available for each of our parents and the information can be picked up in the MHS office. This site will allow parents to view their child's attendance and grades at any time. If you have any questions, please call MHS at 652-7920.
