Report an Absence

Regular attendance is vital for successful learning.

ABSENCES

Each time your child is absent from school please call our school attendance line # 317-3699 on the day of the absence, before 9:00 am.
 
If you do not call us, you will need to send an absence note with your child upon return to school. Parents/guardians of students who are marked absent will be called at home or at work to report the absence on a daily basis. The district attendance officers will be notified when a student accumulates excessive absences. If you know in advance that your child will be absent for several days for non-medical reasons, you may arrange with the teacher for an excused, Pre-Informed Study Contract. Please make your request at least one week in advance to provide the teacher time to prepare assignments.

Classwork will be provided for absent students in grades 1-5 if a request is made before 10:00 a.m. on the day the child is absent. The work will be available after 3:15 p.m. in the office.

TARDINESS

Students are expected to be in school on time. Punctuality is a lifelong skill. If a student is late, a tardy pass will be issued from the office. Parents will be contacted when a student is repeatedly late to school. The district attendance officers may be notified when a student accumulates excess tardies.
