Online Learning at Acacia

In an effort to provide transparency and clarity during our time of virtual learning, we have created this page to provide you with vital information regarding your student's learning. Please explore this page and do not hesitate to get in touch if you need any assistance or have any questions.

 

ATTENDANCE

Please click the Attendance button to view your student's attendance and classwork records. Records are listed by family number separated by grade. Contact reception if you do not know your family number. Please note that the attendance percentage on this sheet is for students marked "present" (green) or "excused" (blue). Student's mentioned for perfect attendance in the newsletter, however, are students that have maintained 100% "present" (green) attendance marks in a week's time. If your student is absent for any approved reason, please contact reception so they may inform teachers.

  • Senior School teachers will be recording attendance and work completed each of the four morning lessons. This sheet is updated frequently, but please allow time for our teachers to update their classwork records after due dates have passed. 
    • Present = Arriving on time to a lesson no more than 5 minutes after the start time.
    • Late = Arriving to a lesson between 5 and 30 minutes after start time.
    • Absent (unexcused) = Arriving to a lesson after 30 minutes or not at all
    • Excused = Student did not attend and a guardian has notified reception of the reason.
