We are improving our attendance system to ensure families are aware when a student is absent.
Starting in the 2020-21 School Year, parents and guardians can now simply log in to their Infinite Campus Parent Portal site to notify School staff of an expected student absence. This will ensure the authenticity of reported absences, while also providing families with improved communication when a student misses class.
See below for a step-by-step guide that can help you through the process.
The BVSD Report Absence Form allows parents and guardians to securely report a student’s absence from school for a single day. Users submitting an absence report will receive a confirmation email at the contact email address listed in Infinite Campus. The form can be toggled between English and Spanish. Confirmation emails will be sent in English or Spanish depending on the preferred language of the user listed in Infinite Campus.
Students are not able to self-report absences from Campus Student.
How to use the BVSD Excused Absence Form
Log in to the Campus Parent website from any internet-connected computer, tablet, or mobile device with your Infinite Campus username and password. Or login to the Parent Portal app.
In left-hand menu, click More (If menu not visible, click Hamburger icon )
In “Quick Links” section, click “Report Absence”
Complete fields and click “Submit”
To report absence for a second child, click the intended individual’s tab. The active student tab is blue.
To Switch Form Between Spanish and English
Once logged into the form, use the select list in the upper right corner of the screen to select desired language.
If you run into troubles using the form, don’t know your Infinite Campus log in information, or need a password reset, please contact your School’s office. They will be able to make sure you get the help you need.
If your student will be absent from school for more than three days, please fill out a LES Prearranged Absence Form. Complete the form two weeks before your anticipated absence if at all possible.
Please be aware that it is not our policy to give daily class work or homework assignments for extended absences. In some cases, your child’s teacher may have suggestions that would help keep your child close to current with in-class skills, but the teacher will not give out all daily work that will be missed. The mix of direct instruction, standards assessment and skills application in the classroom cannot be easily packaged into a travel packet.
