Attendance Information

Please contact the office about absent or late students before 9am and any pickup changes before 2pm.

If your student is late, but does not stop at the front office, they will be marked absent in our attendance system and you will receive a robocall.

Any elementary student at school before 8:15am must be enrolled in Big Canoe Club.

Happy first week of school, Great River families!

As a reminder, please email attendance@greatriverschool.org to inform the school about any attendance details (student absence, tardiness, or pickup changes)!

The front office is staffed from 8am-3:30pm and is primarily responsible for student attendance and health. Emailing your student's classroom guide or advisor is a kind gesture, but will not inform the school-wide attendance system. If you prefer voicemail, you can always leave a message on the attendance line (651-305-2780). If you have a general question, please email office@greatriverschool.org and we will assist as best we can! Our old email (info@) is being retired and your student's attendance details might be missed.

Teachers take attendance at 8:30am when school begins. If your student arrives at school after 8:30am but before 8:45am, they can go straight to their learning spaces, where they will be marked tardy by their teacher. If your student arrives after 8:45am, they need to stop at the front office for a late pass. If a student is marked absent and the school has not heard from their parents, all listed numbers in Powerschool will receive an automated attendance call, letting you know of your student's absence.

Please contact office@greatriverschool.org with any questions - we look forward to a successful year of growth!

Adolescent students who eat breakfast at school may enter the cafe space through the south main door (not the elementary door) at 7:30am. Their academic spaces will be unlocked at 8am.

Elementary students who purchase breakfast from school may be in the cafe space at 8:10am. The elementary doors will open at 8:15am.

best, the great river admin team
