Create site/subsite attendance holidays

Use the holiday feature when a regularly scheduled classes are not held because of program break, bad weather, etc.

  • Holidays will appear on the Classes>Attendance calendar with green shading.
  • Holidays can be noted for the entire ABE program or individual subsites. They cannot be recorded for individual classes.
  • Dates marked as holidays cannot be selected from the calendar on the Classes>Attendance screen.*

*There is a workaround that allows attendance to be entered during a holiday break. See instructions below. 

Create an attendance calendar holiday

  1. On the Admin tab, click the Manage Holidays link.
  2. On the Holidays screen, click the Add button.
  3. In the screen that appears, select All Subsites from the menu to have the holiday appear on attendance calendars for every class in your ABE program. Or choose a subsite name from the menu to apply the holiday to only classes at the selected subsite.
  4. Type a name for the holiday or event, then choose the dates the holiday break will begin and end. Click the Save button.
  5. On the Classes tab, select the name of a class in the site/subsite affected by the newly added holiday. On the Attendance subtab, confirm that the holiday appears on the calendar with green shading.

Workaround: enter student attendance during a holiday break

Sometimes staff meet with students even when the site is marked as a holiday. It is possible to add student hours for those site holidays.

  • Staff must have a login role of Admin to add hours on the Students>Time tab.
  • To add contact, counseling, one-on-one, or distance learning hours, student hours must be dated within the current month or one month prior. See more in this help article: One (1) Month Lockdown for Entering Time, Tests

For each student, add class time via the Students>Time tab rather than the Classes>Attendance tab. 

Be sure to use the correct date, hours type, class, start time, and total hours.
