What do I do when my student is going to be absent?
Before 9:00 a.m. on the morning of each absence, parents are asked to call the administrative office at 947-0313, option 1 and leave a message stating why the student will not be at school.
What if my student will be absent in the future?
Absences that are known about prior to the day must have a planned absence form filled out. This does not include sick days. You can find these forms in the main office or here on the website. Whether it’s one day or multiple, please turn this form into the main office before your absence. Students are responsible for obtaining assignments which will be covered during their absence.
