What do I do if my child is late to school?

Tardies affect the entire class, so we appreciate all students who get to school on time. If your child must be late, we ask him or her to stop by the office and get a pass before heading to class.

My child needs to be absent. How do I proceed?

If you know your child must be absent, please send a note to your child’s teacher explaining the circumstances and dates of the absence. We will try our best to get any work together that your child might miss. If your child is sick, please call the office the morning of the absence, and let us know where your child is. Not only do we want to make sure your child is safe, we also want to mark your child as “excused.” If we do not receive a call or note explaining the absence, we will record it as “unexcused.”
