From time to time a student will find it necessary to be absent from school.

When a student is absent from school for any reason, the parent must notify the school.  A note or e-mail stating the reason for the absence on or before the day in question is preferred.  All absences must be cleared within three school days from the last consecutive day of absence.  After that time, all unexplained absences will be considered unexcused.  Under state funding guidelines, it is fraudulent for a parent to falsely excuse a student’s absence or tardiness. 

Parents will receive an automated call when their student has an unexcused absence or tardy, one or more periods. 

Absences can be excused calling the attendance office, by submitting a note to the office or e-mail to  In your e-mail, please include the student’s name, grade, date of absence, and reason.
