Why are attendance records not created when using the Action > Return from Absence option?
The purpose of the Return from Absence option is to provide an admit slip for a student when attendance records should not be updated. For example: Student is at the principal's office, and is returned to class, but we do not want a Late record to appear in his attendance records. This allows the teacher to know that the late is valid. Sign-in should be used if attendance records should be involved.
