It is board policy that all absences be verified when a student is not in school. An absence left unverified will be coded as unexcused. The school office will attempt to contact the parent/guardian thru Connect Ed, unverified absence letters in Tuesday envelopes and contact with the students’ teacher. An absence code may not be changed after 5 days. Please contact the school as soon as possible if your child is absent.
The following methods may be used to verify student absences.
- Call the school attendance line at 257-5644. Give the student’s name, teacher, reason, and date of absence.
- Send a written note the day your child returns to school verifying the date and reason for the absence. Also include your child’s full name and teacher.
If you have any questions regarding absence policies, please call the school office at 256-5600.
