Absence Reporting Procedure
It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to report their student’s absences. Only parents/guardians can excuse a student’s absence. The office opens at 7:30 a.m. When writing an email or leaving a message, please state the name of the child, spell your last name, and provide a reason for the absence. Please do not send your child back to school until he/she is completely recovered.
Attendance Secretary: TBD

If for any reason (other than illness) your child must leave school before the regular dismissal time, he/she should bring a note from you to the office, specifying the purpose of the absence, the departure time and the time that he/she expects to return. Upon leaving or returning to school for any reason and at any time, the parent must come to the main office and the office staff will call the student to the office and sign him/her out/in.
Students are considered TARDY if they are not in their classroom at 8:10 a.m. Late students must check in at the main office and get a Tardy Slip to take to their teacher. Late students miss valuable instruction and unnecessarily interrupt their classes.
