Attendance & Check In / Out Procedures

    Student absences will be recorded by the teacher during each period of the day.

    In order to excuse a student’s absence, parents will need to:

    • Call the Holmes Attendance Line (734.744.2676) and follow the prompts, OR
    • Fill out the “Report an Absence” Google form on the Holmes website under Quick Links (used for FULL DAY absences and LATE ARRIVALS only). 

    Parents/Guardians should report excused absences for their student on a daily basis by noon the day following the absence.

    Livonia Public Schools Board of Education Policy deems ten absences in a class during a given semester as an excessive amount.


    A student checking in after the start of school must check in at the Main Office.

    To excuse a late arrival, a parent or legal guardian may...

    • Use the online Report an Absence form
    • Send a note with the student, or
    • Call the Attendance Line (734.744.2676)

    In order to limit the number of visitors to our building and not disrupt student learning, we ask that if your student needs to be dismissed before the end of the school day (2:50pm), they should bring a note sign by a parent/guardian to the Attendance Office before their first class of the day, where they will receive an Early Dismissal pass.

    Students who receive a pass to leave during the school day should keep the pass until the time indicated on it, show it to their teacher at the appropriate time and come to the Main Office with their belongings to check out.

    ALL parents will need to present ID in order for us to dismiss the student. Students will only be released to contacts who are listed in MiStar.

    Parents and students should not use electronic devices to contact each other in order to make arrangements for early release.

    Students may not leave the school building during the school day without checking out in the Main Office.
