Customized attendance grade policy?

I have a question about incorporating attendance into my canvas gradebook.  My department uses the following attendance policy for our students:

3 lates = 1 absence,

the equivalent of 3 absences = no penalty,

4 absences = ½ letter grade reduction in final class average,

Additional ¼ letter grade reduction for each additional absence


Up to this point, I have disabled the attendance function in my canvas gradebook, have been manually calculating the attendance penalty for my students and informing them in-person It would be great if their real-time grade reflected their attendance as well.   Is there any way to better customize the attendance function to incorporate this formula (or craft an an assignment that would do the same thing)?
