Absence Policy


If your child is going to miss school for ANY reason, please call the school office at 739-5820 or send a note giving the name of your student, the student's teacher, the reason for the absence and the day/date the student(s) will be absent. This procedure will prevent unnecessary calls to the home as all absences must be verified by our office staff for State and District Compliance.

Parents, if you are planning to have your child/children out of school for 5 or more consecutive days, please speak with our attendance clerk as soon as possible to set up an Independent Study Contract.
