4J high schools recently made adjustments in how attendance is documented, and students should make certain that they access each of that day’s classes within Canvas to be counted as present. Students continue to be expected to access synchronous classes via Zoom as well as engaging in modules in Canvas.  On Advisory (Flex) Days, students should open up each of their courses in Canvas.  Most attendance reporting will be done through the Attendance Team in the main office and attendance will be viewable in StudentVUE/ParentVUE.

Students should make it a priority to be in class when scheduled and to stay engaged throughout the term.  Because we know that this is a particularly challenging year in Oregon for many people, if you are having difficulty attending regularly, please let us know how we can support you.  There is some flexibility in the schedule that is intended as a support in this challenging time.

When there is no evidence of a student’s Canvas activity during the day of a scheduled class meeting, students are reported as absent for the class on that particular day. Phone calls notifying families of their student’s attendance will be made on Mondays for the previous week.

The following are typically accepted reasons for absences:

  • Student illness, health condition, mental or behavioral health, or medical appointment including but not limited to medical, counseling, dental, or optometry. Administrators may ask for documentation from a medical provider regarding an appointment, illness, or health condition.
  • Family emergency, including but not limited to a death or illness in the family
  • Court proceeding
