It is vital to our success that students attend school each day. American Prep supports a state goal of 95% attendance school-wide. Our academic goals will be achieved only if our students attend school regularly.

General Procedures

Due to allergies, student and staff sensitivities, please do not bring pets into the school building when checking out students, dropping off lunches, or any other time. Service dogs are exempt.

  1. If a student is unable to attend school, a parent or guardian must call the school on the day of the absence before 8:00 a.m. to report the absence. If a parent does not notify the school, the student may be considered truant. THE SCHOOL PHONE NUMBER IS LISTED ON EACH CAMPUS WEBSITE.
  2. If the absence is illness related, we ask parents to report any symptoms or doctor's diagnosis for the child's absence. We will be tracking illnesses for potential outbreaks of communicable diseases.
  3. Attendance will be kept each day at American Prep and will be reported to the administration by each teacher. Administration will track daily attendance and will report any extended absences to the Director.
  4. Absences may affect a student's grade according to the class disclosures in secondary grades and depending upon work missed.
  5. Parents are encouraged to schedule appointments outside of school hours whenever possible.
