Walled Lake Central - Attendance

Walled Lake Central Attendance Policy (Tardies and Absences)

  • Procedure for Reporting a Student Absence: It is important that student absences are due to one of the acceptable reasons above. 
    • Student should email his or her teachers to inquire about missed instruction and makeup work opportunities.
    • Parent/Guardian call the Attendance Hotline at (248) 956-4999.  Follow the prompts.
    • Parent/Guardian only may excuse an absence (students who call themselves in to excuse an absence may be subject to disciplinary action)
    • Pre-arranged absences: should be communicated to the school the day prior or before 7:00 a.m. the morning of dismissal


Other Important Attendance Information

  • WLC seeks to preserve the academic environment. The attendance office will not call classrooms to excuse a student from class unless it is a true emergency.
  • WLC is a closed campus.  Students are not allowed to be called out of school by a parent/guardian to eat lunch off campus and then return to school.
    • If a student is returning to WLC the same day as the dismissal due to a healthcare appointment, it is expected that the student will provide a note on a health provider's letterhead verifying the date and time the student was seen by the provider.
