Your child's educational success is important to us, and regular attendance is the first step in achieving that success.


 

If your child is going to be absent, please call 634-1174 or e-mail the Attendance Office before 8:30 AM. 

Parents may call the Attendance Office at any time to report an absence.  If it is before/after hours, or I am just unable to answer, please leave a message with the absence information requested.

If you would like to email your child's absence, please send your email to the address listed at the bottom of this page.  I respond to all emails verifying that they have been received.

If your child has been marked absent and I have not heard from you, I will be contacting you.  I want to ensure that your child is safe.


Please note: Not all reported absences will be considered excused.  Examples of unexcused absence include: oversleeping, car trouble, shopping, work, babysitting, haircut, leaving school without permission from the office, absent from class without the consent of a parent/guardian, etc.  Please refer to the student handbook for more information. 

For students in a school-related sport/activity - 
The attendance office must be notified of appointments 24 hours in advance for the student to be eligible to participate in that day's event.  However, in the case of a last-minute doctor's appointment, a doctor's note will be accepted to regain eligibility.  Please see the student handbook for further clarification. 


Your help in reporting your child's absence is greatly appreciated!
