Report an Absence

Excused Absences  

Absences are excused if they are a result of:

  • Illness
  • Death in the immediate family
  • Emergency medical or dental attention
  • Absences approved in advance by the principal or vice principal
Unexcused Absences 

Absences are not excused if they are a result of: 

  • Truancy
  • Suspension
  • Missing the bus
  • Cutting a class in order to make up work in another class
  • Expected absences, which are not pre-arranged and approved for the date of the absence.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Absences not verified by a note or phone call from the parent must be confirmed with the attendance secretary no later than three days after the student returns to school. Students will be marked as truant when such notification is not provided. Unexcused absences can result in disciplinary action. 

Reporting an Absence

We prefer that you email your child's
tardy or absence to the following link:
Please allow 2-hours to update your report.
You can also call the attendance office (265-6100) before 7:30 AM to let us know your child will not be at school for the day.  
If either of those is not possible, please send a note with your student when he/she returns to school.  If we don't receive a note or a call from you within 72 hours of the absence, your child will be considered truant (see truancy policy).
