Frequently Asked Questions

Whom do I contact if my student(s) are absent?

When a student is absent any time during school hours, they must submit a written or medical note to Susie Lee, the attendance clerk in Room 8 within three days of returning to school. Telephone Calls are NOT necessary to report student absences.

All notes must include the following information: Student First and Last Name; Date of Absent (if not all day, time or period absent); Reason for Absence; and Signature of Parent, Guardian or Caregiver
