How To….

Report an Absence:

Dial 347-2970, then 1, then 2.  This hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  It is VERY important that the student’s name, grade, reason for absence, and requests for homework are left on the hotline.

To obtain an Early Dismissal or to make a Transportation Change:

Always send a note with the student on or before the morning of the early dismissal or transportation change.  Please avoid calling the attendance office for an early dismissal or transportation change to minimize disruptions to classroom activities.

The note for early dismissal needs to contain the student’s name and grade, date and time of early dismissal, reason for leaving, phone number of the parent/guardian signing the note, and parent/guardian signature.  Please have the student bring the note to the attendance office no later than the morning of the early dismissal and he/she will be issued a pass for dismissal.

The note for a transportation change needs to contain the student’s name and grade, date of transportation change, details of the change,  phone number of the parent/guardian signing the note, and parent/guardian signature.  Please have the student bring the note to the attendance office no later than the morning of the transportation change.

Late Arrivals:

Please call the absence line if your student will be arriving to school late.  It is also very important that the student arrive with a note containing the student’s name, grade, date, time arriving, reason for tardiness, and parent/guardian signature.  Students will be issued a pass admitting them to class when they check in with the attendance office.
