Attendance Procedures


Parents/Guardians must call Southgate Academy within 24 hours of your student’s absence or on the first day of multiple day absence. If you must be out of town, you are responsible for notifying the school before leaving as to who has the authority to excuse your student’s absences. Explanation of your student’s absence(s) must be provided to the attendance office within one (1) school day following your student’s return to school, or the absence(s) WILL REMAIN UNEXCUSED.

You may, because of an extraordinary situation, request a modification of these reporting procedures by calling the attendance office at ext. 711. Failure to notify Southgate Academy will result in an unexcused absence.
