Some Students Reported as Absent
As many of you know, SchoolReach is the automated system the school district uses to send phone, email, and text messages to students, staff, and parents. It is closely integrated with our PowerSchool student information system and these two systems work together to send out unexcused absence reports to our parents.
Today, some parents received a call telling them that they had a student absent from school. This seems to have happened mainly for students at the middle school and happened if the student was marked absent in the PowerSchool system regardless of the reason. The student may have been accidentally marked absent or may have been absent with an excuse.
Ft. Larned USD 495 and our IT Department would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused to our parents and families. We are working with SchoolReach to try and determine why those calls went out erroneously and to make sure that the problem is corrected so that it does not cause problems in the future. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we investigate this issue.
