In the event of an all-day student absence, parents/guardians are responsible for contacting the school to verify the absence. Student absences must be reported to the school by the end of the school day, on the date of the absence. If the absence is not reported by a parent/guardian, the student absence will be considered unexcused. When calling in an absence, please provide the following information:
• Caller’s name
• Student’s name
• Name of student’s teacher
• Reason for absence
• Number of days student will be absent
Courtesy attendance calls will continue to go out in the morning about 10:00 a.m. on the date of an absence. If you receive a call and have already verified your child’s absence, please disregard the message.
If your child is tardy or absent in the morning only, when your child is checked in for the remainder of the day, this will serve as attendance verification for AM-only absences. PM absences will be verified by the parent/guardian when the child is picked up from school. PM courtesy attendance calls will be sent about 2:00 p.m. for students who are absent in the afternoon.
