Regular attendance is very important to school success. If your child is absent, please call the school office (435-8740) by 9:00 a.m. to report the absence. It is very important that the office have a telephone number on file where you can be reached in case of an emergency. If you do not have access to a phone, please send a note explaining the reason for your child’s absence. Homework may be picked up by parents, a sibling or neighbor, if requested by noon. Students with more than eight absences will receive a letter from Student Services regarding attendance. If absences continue, referral to pre-court and/or court will be the next step.
