Calling In Sick (or absent)
There are 180 days in a school year. But situations arise, or illnesses spread, and students find themselves missing school days. In the event a student is absent or tardy, all schools require notification from the parent/guardian of the student.
The parent/guardian – not the student – is responsible for calling in all absences. Call your school to leave a message each day your child is absent or tardy. For your convenience, we have installed a digital answering device at each school. Please leave a message and indicate the following:
Classroom Number or Teacher’s Name
Reason for the Absence or Tardiness
This notification can be done verbally (in person or via phone call) or by a written note. For all students absent or tardy without verification, an attempt will be made to contact a parent/guardian on the day of the absence. Once contact is made with a parent/guardian, a notation will be made by office personnel as to the reason for the absence.
