Required Attendance & Bell Schedule

Distance Learning Home > Required Attendance Process

Attendance at a Glance

  • Cadets officially designated as distance learners will be marked as follows for each class, each day: RP (remote present), RT (remote tardy), RU (remote absent).

  • Cadets who are asked to quarantine by SMA Prep will have their status changed during the specified quarantine time to Distance Learners. During that time cadets will attend each of their classes through Google Meets for attendance and continue working in their Google Classroom remotely to keep up with their class work. See the instructions below for how to log in and attend Google Meets.

  • Cadets who are officially designated as on campus learners and do not attend school on campus will be marked "U" (unexcused absence) unless a doctor or parent written note is provided. Showing up on a Google Meet does not mean you will automatically be marked present. 

All Distance Learners and those asked to quarantine will need to log into their school account through Clever to access their Google Classrooms and join Google Meet at the start of each class to be present for attendance. The "Homeroom/Period 1" classroom will begin at 9:15am. Distance leaners should prepare ahead of time so they are ready to go at the start time for each class.

  • If you have technical difficulties you must call 941-877-7737 to let us know during the first 10 mins. of class.
  • If your teacher is not in the Google meet at the time that you join, make sure you have the correct time and class.
  • If so, wait patiently until they begin the Google Meet, do not leave the meeting.
  • If there is a substitute teacher covering a class you will see an announcement in the class stream with instructions for that days work and a required attention question in the "classwork" tab that will count for your attendance.
  • Also, check your Google Classroom stream and also your classwork tab at the start of each class.

SMA Prep Google Classroom
  • -- Click "Join" for any and all classes.
  • -- Open "Homeroom/Period 1" no later 9:15am to start your day and be ready for homeroom and attendance.
  • -- To officially join your class for attendance click on the google meet link in the top left corner of the class.You'll see a
  •     small video camera icon. If you don't get in right away, try again as your teacher may just be beginning the meet.
  • -- Once you've joined the Google meet, your teacher will take attendance at the start of class and inform you of your next activity or topic of instruction. You may also be dismissed from the Google Meet to work independently as appropriate and at the teacher's discretion.     

When it is time for your next class, you will open that period's classroom and join the Google meet link at the start of that class to be on time for attendance. You will repeat this process for all of your classes through out the school day.
