Attendance Information

Attendance Hotline: 231.922.6320

Parents, please call the attendance hotline on the day your son/daughter is absent from CTC.

All personal absences need to be reported by calling the CTC attendance hotline as well as the student’s home school attendance office. Parents can expect to be notified by an automated phone system, School Messenger, for any unreported absences. Parents are given 48-hours to report or verify student absences. The hotline and message system are available 24 hours a day.

TARDINESS
All students who are tardy are required to report to the Student Services Office. Tardiness will be penalized by a loss of daily work ethic points. Every third tardy will affect attendance as a penalty day. If the student arrives later than 15 minutes after the home school’s start time, or leaves 15 minutes before scheduled home school departure time, a tardy is recorded. Upon the sixth tardy, the student may be referred to CTC administration for further progressive disciplinary action.

Please refer to the CTC student handbook for a full reference of attendance expectations.
