Ohio law requires that parents call their school attendance line on the morning of the student absence. If a call is not placed before 9:45 a.m., it may result in an automated call inquiring about your child’s absence.For your convenience, please find the individual school attendance lines: 

Upon return to school, please submit a note indication one of the excused reasons (below) with a parent or guardian signature. Parents are allotted six parent notes per semester to excuse your child’s absence for illness or medical appointments. A note from a physician will be required beginning with the seventh day of absence due to illness or medical appointments.

We want all our students to achieve their highest potential.  One essential ingredient to accomplish this is your student’s attendance.  Attendance is vital in helping your student have a positive and successful school experience.

Here at Winton Woods City Schools we have instituted the following ways to help you monitor your students’ attendance:

  1. Progress Book – Parents can always log on to or interactive program and receive up to date information concerning their students’ attendance.
  2. One Call – Student who have not reported to school or we have not receive notification from parent for the student absence by 9:45 am will receive a call from our automatic phone system.
  3. Personal Calls – Students who have reached 6 days of unexcused absence will receive a personal call from their school building staff.
  4. Attendance Letters- Parents will receive written warning for students who have accumulated 5, 7, or 10 days of unexcused absences.

The premise is simple: Students need to attend school daily to succeed.  But you may be wondering what is considered an excused absence.


Students will be granted an excused absence for the following:

(1) Personal illness
(2) Illness in the family
(3) Quarantine in the home
(4) Death of a relative
(5) Observance of a religious holiday
(6) Any other reason which has been approved by the school prior to the absence.


Winton Woods City Schools defines tardiness as arriving late to school or to class without an acceptable reason. You don’t want these to add up, because:

  • Every FIVE times a student is tardy is equal to ONE day of unexcused absences; and
  • Excessive number of tardies may result in a proof of residency check. Students who are open-enrolled are still expected to be in school every day and on time.

EXCESSIVE ABSENCES                                                                       

Please monitor your student’s attendance. Too many unexcused absences & tardiness may lead to a Hamilton County Unofficial & Official Court Charge!
