MSC Attendance/Early Dismissals
Center Grove Middle School Central parents and guardians can now report a student absence using their Skyward Family Access account. Using Skyward Family Access account gives you the ability to report or request an absence 24/7 using your computer or mobile device. School attendance is important. If your MSC student is going to be absent for any reason, please enter before 9:00 AM each day. We ask that you do this to ensure the safety of our students.
How to report an absence using Skyward Family Access
EARLY DISMISSALS - If you need to request to have your student released early, please enter the request in your Skyward Family Access account.
EXTENDED ABSENCES - In the event of a family emergency or a planned absence which will result in missing several days of school, students need to complete a family leave form well in advance of the day to be missed. We highly encourage parents to plan family vacations during our calendar breaks as attendance does influence a child’s ability to succeed in school.
DOCTOR NOTES - It is a good idea that when a doctor’s visit accompanies an absence that you ask the doctor to write a note for our school files, and it will count as an excused absence. If a student arrives to school late from a doctor’s appointment, please have them turn the slip into the office. Without the slip it will count as a late arrival/lost instructional time or unexcused absence.
