Attendance

Student illness related absences must be reported to the Nurse @ 353-7290.
Absences for those not ill should be reported to the office @ 353-7280.

Parents must notify the school/nurse as early as possible in the morning; before the start of the school day -- 8:50AM. Messages can be left on the Nurse's voicemail around the clock any day of the week. Messages will be retrieved every morning. Students should be in the building at 8:45AM. After 8:50, a Late Pass is needed from the office. Please do not email teachers with absence messages. Absences must be reported by telephone to the nurse or office.

If you haven't called to report your child's absence you will receive a call from the Attendance Clerk to make sure that your child is accounted for. Your cooperation in calling promptly avoids unnecessary calls which cause anxiety for all concerned. It is the parent responsibility to notify the school of absences.

If you inform the teacher in writing of anticipated absences for varying reasons, the classroom teacher will then forward the information to the Attendance Clerk.

AGAIN, THE NUMBER TO REPORT ABSENCES IS: 353-7290. Voicemail is on 24 hours, 7 days. Thank you very much.

Any change in dismissal requires a note to teacher via book bag. Students will be sent to office at time on dismissal note. Without a note, a student will follow his/her regular dismissal. Thank you for scheduling doctor/ dentist appointments after school hours.
