Report Absences

Good attendance is a great way to promote success in school. Being in class and on time are strongly linked with students who do well in school. This is why we take attendance so seriously.

Contact us as soon as possible if you know your child will be absent. Please report your child's absence using the form below or calling our main office before 9 a.m. 

Extended Leave Request

If you are planning a trip that requires your child to miss more than 3 days, please complete a Leave Request Form.  This is to ensure that you understand the district policy on attendance and that you are responsible to make sure your child makes up any missed assignments.

Unexcused Absences

When we do not hear from you, we will try to verify your child’s absence by contacting you via robocall, email and a second phone call.  If we do not receive a note or phone contact within two days of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused.

According to our district policy and state law, your child’s absence may be excused for illnesses, religious observances and family emergencies. Unexcused absences can carry serious consequences.

If you are reporting a late arrival, please let the office know if your child will need to order a hot lunch.
