Welcome to the CFHS attendance page. Parents, please make sure you and your student are familiar with CFHS's attendance procedures. Attendance email forms can be found on the sidebar to the left as well as a Sign-In/Out Guide. If you have any questions please contact our Attendance Clerk, Tracy Bignall at 520-209-8318 or our Dean of Students, Dante Franco, at 520-209-8412.

We appreciate your knowledge of CFHS policies and procedures as well as your commitment to following them so that we can accurately track student attendance for academic, safety and financial reasons.

For LATE ARRIVALS the FIRST period of the day:

1. Student brings a doctor’s note to the FRONT OFFICE AND the student signs in at the FRONT OFFICE. Student will be issued a pass to class.

2. All other students will be sent to SWEEP and will sign in at SWEEP, unless there are extenuating circumstances.

For LATE ARRIVALS all other periods of the day (all students must sign in at the FRONT OFFICE):

One of the following is required for the absence(s) to be excused:

1. Parent/guardian phone call to attendance excusing the late arrival AND the student signs in at the FRONT OFFICE

Parents/guardians of 9th and 10th graders must do one of the following for the absence(s) to be excused:

1. Send note to the FRONT OFFICE in the morning indicating time of departure. Student will be issued a pass to leave class. Parent will meet the student at the FRONT OFFICE to sign out. This is the PREFERRED method.

2. Ask the FRONT OFFICE to call the student out of class (not preferred due to the disruption of class instruction) and sign the student out.

NOTE: 9th and 10th graders are NOT permitted to sign themselves out to leave campus unless there is an emergency.

Parents/guardians of 11th and 12th graders must do one of the following for the absence(s) to be excused:

1. Send the student with a note and a verification phone number and then the student must SIGN OUT at the FRONT OFFICE.

2. Call the attendance office prior to the student’s planned departure from school and the student must then SIGN OUT at the FRONT OFFICE.


All students must report to the HEALTH OFFICE if they become ill during the school day. If the nurse deems it appropriate, the student may be sent home due to illness.

• 9th and 10th graders must be picked up by their parents/guardians

• 11th and 12th graders may sign out after the health office receives approval from the parent/guardian

For an OFF-CAMPUS ILLNESS (the student stays home from school):

A phone call to the attendance line or a note must be turned in to the front office from the parent/guardian within 24 HOURS of the student’s return to school in order for the absence(s) to be excused. Please be prompt.
