see why...

Your child now has seven different classes.  This means that if they check out after 11:30, they may not be counted absent for the WHOLE DAY, but they will be counted absent for EVERY CLASS MISSED.  So before you start thinking, "Well, I'll wait till after lunch to check them out so they're counted as here..."  STOP!  In this scenario, they would be counted absent for 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th period.  That's 4 out of 7 classes!  Constant late check-ins can and will kill your child's 1st period grade, just like constant check-outs will kill their grades in the later periods.  Good attendance can make or break a student's grade!
