Attendance & Absence Reporting

Attendance and Absence Reporting

Report an Absence: nqhsattendance@quincypublicschools or (617) 984-8746

Regular school attendance is fundamental for a student’s academic success and personal growth. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to learn the material, participate in class discussions, and complete assignments.

Excessive absences may impact a student's academic standing and eligibility for certain extracurricular activities. We encourage parents/guardians to prioritize regular attendance to ensure their child's academic progress and overall well-being.

Absence Reporting

If your child is absent from school, please contact the attendance office as soon as possible. You may email the office at nqhsattendance@quincypublicschools or call (617) 984-8746.

When you contact the attendance office, please provide the following information:

  • Your child's name

  • Your child's grade level

  • The date of your child's absence

  • The reason for your child's absence

Following the absence, parents/guardians must provide written documentation, such as a note from a doctor for medical absences or a letter explaining the reason for the absence.
