Maplewood Web App for Elementary Schools

  • Normally homeroom teachers should use the Maplewood web app to record attendance during the first 10 minutes of the class. The office staff will then try to contact the parents of any students for which a reason for their absence has not been received.
  • Before taking attendance the homeroom teacher should verify that the attendance will be recorded for the correct date.

  • Prior to the start of class the office staff should have already recorded attendance codes for students who have been reported absent by parents.

Homeroom teachers should not change the attendance that has been entered by the office, unless they know it to be inaccurate.

  • Select the attendance code for the morning or afternoon and click the appropriate box beside the student names to which the attendance code should apply. Typically homeroom teachers will simply mark students as A for absent as office staff will have marked attendance for students for which explanations have been received.
