Parents should call the Attendance Office to report a child’s absence. During school hours, you can reach Attendance at 242-5000 x4802. If you call after school hours, you may leave a message. If it is necessary for a student to leave school during the day, a written parental request must be presented to the attendance office before he/she can be excused. The written request should include the reason for leaving school, the name of the doctor, dentist or person to be seen and the parent’s signature, the time the student is to be excused and the time the student expects to return. When returning to school, the student must sign in. The parent may also call the attendance office with this information.
Additional information pertaining to absences due to educational or instructional programs, religious holidays, tardiness, and truancy can be found in the Student/Parent handbook which is available through the main office.
