Reporting Absences

Each school has a telephone number that parents may call to report a student absence 24 hours a day. Parents are expected to report a student’s absence by 9am on the day of the absence. Parents are contacted at home or work by the school office if the parent has not called to report the absence to the school.

Any absence not reported by note or phone call within 24 hours of a student’s return to school will be reported as unexcused.

If requested by school personnel, parents of students absent from school for any reason shall submit in written form, documentation of their child’s absences, the specific days or times they were absent, verification of doctor/dental/court appointments, and signature of the parent/guardian.
