Automatic notifications from the Attendance Office
We use the Voice Messenger feature in Infinite Campus. We will utilize this program to inform parents by e-mail and phone regarding attendance. When your student is marked absent or tardy you will receive an e-mail and phone call from Starr's Mill High School stating that your child has been marked as absent or tardy. Home phone numbers are opt-in by default; however, you can change these settings by logging into your Portal account and modifying the settings for each phone number in User Account > Contact Preferences. We encourage you to log into Parent Portal and update your contact information. We appreciate your patience as we pilot this new feature.
