 If your child will be absent from school, please contact the Attendance Office by
10 am that day. You can contact the attendance office by calling or 
e-mailing using the information listed at the top of the page.
 
Please remember that attendance at the secondary level is taken each
class period. If a student arrives late or leaves early, they will be               
marked absent for the class periods they miss.
 
 
DOCTOR/PARENT NOTE 
 
A note is required describing the reason for the absence when your child
returns to school. Written documentation must be received within three days
from the date of the absence. Otherwise the absence will be unexcused.
 
If your doctor's note does not cover the entire time your child was absent from
school, you will need to write a note to excuse the rest of the day(s) .
 
Please make sure the student's first and last name and student ID # appear on all notes that are
turned in to the office.
