Submitting an Absence

Skyward Family Access has the ability for parents/guardians to submit an absence for your student online. As of the 2019-2020 school year, this is the recommended way of alerting your child’s school of an absence. An absence can be submitted in advance of the date for appointments or can be submitted on the day of the absence.

If using the Skyward Mobile Access App on a mobile phone, choose the Desktop Account option after entering your PIN.

  1. After logging into your Skyward Family Access account, select the "Attendance" option on the left.
  2. To submit an absence for your student(s), select "Absence Requests" in the right hand corner of the screen.
  3. Once you have selected "Absence Requests", select "Add Request" to submit an absence.
    1. Enter the start and end date for the absence. Use the same date for both values if the absence is one day or part of a day. If the absence is all day, leave the default start and end times as is.
    2. Use the “Reason” drop-down and comments box to explain the absence. Once you are finished, select “Save”. You will receive a confirmation email shortly after selecting “Save”.

If your child is ill, please enter a comment describing the illness. This data helps the school determine if any particular illness is predominant in a school as well as the county.

If an extended absence will span over the weekend (for example, a student is out Friday and the following Monday), two separate absences will need to be entered.

To cancel a pending absence if student will not be absent, select "Absence Requests" button to see a pending absence for a student that has yet to be processed. Use the "Delete" button to the left of the listed absence.
