Absence Procedures

ABSENCE PROCEDURES


PARENTS NEED TO CONTACT THE OFFICE-738-7161 BY 8:45 A.M. IF THEIR CHILD IS UNEXPECTEDLY GOING TO BE ABSENT. IF YOU DO NOT CONTACT THE OFFICE BY 8:45 A.M., THE SCHOOL MESSENGER SYSTEM WILL CALL TO INFORM YOU THAT YOUR STUDENT IS ABSENT.


When your child returns to school, you will need to send a written note explaining the absence. Please include the child's first and last name and date/dates of absence. If an absence remains unexcused for 3 school days, after the student returns to school, they will be considered truant. If your child was seen by a physician, bring the school the doctor's excuse. A doctor's note will exempt the child's absence and will not count towards days missed in the attendance policy.


Students will be expected to make up missed work in a reasonable amount of time upon their return to school.


In the event of a planned absence notify the office as soon as possible with a written note that is signed and dated.


Notify the office by 9:00 a.m. if you are requesting homework. Homework can be picked up at the office after school.
