All attendance forms must be submitted in advance for consideration. In case of an unplanned or unexpected absence/tardy, a form must be submitted within 48 hours for consideration. ALL FORMS ARE AVAILABLE ON THIS PAGE AND ARE SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY. Upon submission, you will receive a reply e-mail stating the status of your attendance request. FAILURE TO SUBMIT AN ATTENDANCE FORM WITHIN THE REQUIRED TIME PERIOD WILL RESULT IN AN AUTOMATIC UNEXCUSED ABSENCE/TARDY.
ATTENDANCE RECORDS for each section are managed by the Section Leader(s) on a weekly basis. All records are kept by the MRD Personnel Manager. An account of attendance issues will be provided to Section Leaders each week. Individuals are responsible for checking these records and immediately addressing any inconsistencies or questions with the Personnel Manager.
It is recommended that all members check the attendance records regularly. Even if it is assumed that no absences or tardies have been recorded, it is possible that mistakes or oversights have been made. Please take responsibility for your own records.
