UNV and UTD. We've been receiving a large number of calls concerning the attendance information. The main questions concern the UNV and UTD codes.The UNV (Unverified) code is used to identify an Unverified absence, meaning at the time of attendance the teacher does not have an identified reason for the students absence. If a student is absent for an entire day then they are marked UNV for the entire day. The code will be updated when the school receives an excuse for the absence. If a student is marked UNV for a period or more, it can mean a number of things. The student may have left early or arrived late, or the student might have gone to another room or might not have gone to the class altogether. This is our way of tracking where students are throughout the day.
A UTD (Unexcused Tardy) code is used to identify a student that is late for school or late for a class. We would encourage you to talk with your child about the event before contacting the school.
Please Note: It may take a day or two for the attendance office to get the records updated in the system. Please check with the student first and if there is a concern then please have the student contact the teacher or attendance office.
