Daily Attendance

Use the Daily Attendance page to correct any errors made when taking daily attendance. Changing child attendance on this page is different than checking a child in or out. If you mark a present child as not present on this page, the child's in and out records for the day will be deleted.

  1. From the Attendance & Meal Counts page, click Daily Attendance. The Daily Attendance page opens.
  2. Select the date to correct. You cannot select a future date.
  3. Click the Classroom drop-down menu and select the classroom to correct. You can also select All Classrooms.
  4. Click a child's name to change their attendance status (not present/present).
  5. Click Show All Times to manually update In/Out times.
  6. When finished, click Save.
