Student Absences

  • Student Absences
    Please notify the Health Offices of all absences. Please do NOT enter in Pick Up Patrol.

    Anticipated Absence:  Please notify me in advance of your child's absence from school; for example, vacation, medical care, family issue.  If I know ahead of time, I will not call you on the day your child is absent.

    Unexpected Absence: Please notify me as soon as you are aware that your child will not be attending school on any given day; please be specific if you are reporting an illness; if your child's name is on the absentee list, and I have not heard from you, I will attempt to reach you personally. It is important for your child's safety that the school knows that you are aware of your child's absence.

    Serious Medical Absence:  If your child is ill enough to visit your physician, please ask for a return to school note; it would be helpful for me to know the reason for the medical absence, and the doctor will only include that information if you request it.
