Reporting Absences and Automated Message System
When a student is absent for any reason, a parent/guardian must call the office to report the absence by 8:15 a.m. Messages may be left on the school's answering machine. To ensure the safety for all children, our automated attendance system will call the parent if the school is not notified of the child's absence before 9:00 a.m.
If a student is ill for 3 or more consecutive days, a visit to the doctor is highly recommended. Notes from the doctor should be forwarded to the student's teacher.
