Report an Absence
Not Coming to School Today?
To report an absence or tardy, please call 754-323-3200 and press 1 for 6th grade, 2, for 7th, and 3 for 8th grade. The report must come from a parent and give the date(s) of the absence and the reason for it. Parents MUST report these absences within two days following the absences.
Parents have 48 hours to report absences and tardies. After 48 hours, the absence or tardy cannot be changed (per school board policy 5.5) and they will remain unexcused. It is important to call in the day of each absence to avoid this issue.
Attendance Policy 5.5
- All students' absences must align with the eight (8) reasons allowed for absences, as outlined in the Attendance Policy and in the Code of Student Conduct.
- Parents must state reason (from approved list) for absence when they call in or write a note to report a student's absence.
- Absences can only be excused if they correspond with one of the eight (8) allowed reasons.
