The Supplemental Attendance Sessions (ATS) are School-owned and include more in-depth information including room assignment and session start and end times. There are 3 tabs on the Sessions page for the Calendar (ATC), Staff (ATR) and Students (ATA). This page also has a Print Supplemental Attendance Room Student Self Sign In Sheet that can be printed to allow for students to sign themselves into sessions.
