(480) 279.8000 Option 2

Call the Williams Field’s Attendance Hotline at (480) 279.8000 option 2 to report all absences. Students must have a parent or emergency contact sign them out in order to leave campus early. The attendance line is a 24 hour voicemail, so you may leave a voicemail anytime.

A parent is expected to report Any Absence by phone (preferably prior to the absence) to attendance. To excuse an absence, a parent/guardian must call within 24 hours following the absence.  All absences not verified by a parent/guardian or authorized by an administrator will remain unexcused. No changes will be made to attendance after 24 hours. Please check ParentVue on a daily basis to ensure all absences are updated. All absences excused by a doctor’s note, court paperwork, college visit verification, etc. must be given to the attendance specialist on the student’s first day back to school after that absence.


Late Arrivals/Tardy to School
We encourage parents to assist students with arriving to school on school.  Please be aware of traffic issues and plan accordingly.  Students who come to class late cause a classroom disruption and disrespect to classmates and teachers.  There are two scenarios for tardy students - please follow the following procedures:

With Doctor/Dentist's note - Students go to the attendance office with an doctor note/appointment slip and will be issued a pass to class.

Without Doctor/Dentist's note - Students will go the attendance office and will be assigned After School Detention.

Parents do not need to sign or call in students as the only excused tardy is with a doctor/dentist note.  Students more than 30 minutes late to school will be marked absent for that class.

Early Sign-Out
All students must have a parent/guardian or a person on the emergency list (18 years of age or older) come to the office, present photo ID in order to sign the student out. It is the preference of Williams Field High School not to release students without a parent/guardian present.  All students must sign out in the office to excuse an absence.

For the protection of our students, no student will be called to the office to await pick up.  Please allow ample time for the sign out procedure.

After School Detention (ASD)
Timeliness and preparedness are vital to ensuring student academic success. To this end, ASD is an intervention designed to encourage and reinforce student academic success.  Throughout the day, students may be assigned ASD by their teachers for the following reasons:  tardy, missing homework, and unpreparedness for class.  Students assigned ASD will serve it the following day to provide with parent notification taking place.  A late bus is available for students in need.
