Being efficient with attendance helps to keep the children safe. In order to accomplish this we need your help.
Please call us at 757-9967 extension 1241 if your child is absent or tardy. You can leave a message any time of day or night. The phone messages are checked every morning and throughout the day. If your child is marked absent, an automatic all call will be sent by the computer to a parental phone number. If we do not get a call back, the Health Office will call you to see why your child is not in school. This is done for the safety of your child. When your child returns to school after an absence, a written excuse is sincerely appreciated. In the note, please state the date of the absence, your child’s name, and the reason for the absence. A personal telephone call or an e-mail to the Health Office from the parent/guardian may also be recorded as an excuse.
If your child is tardy, please sign your child in at the Health Office. They will receive a pass to enter the class.
If your child will be dismissed early for any reason, please send a note stating the child’s name, time, who will be picking your child up, and the reason for the early departure. Also, be sure to sign them out at the Health Office for any early departure.
Following through with these attendance procedures helps us to maintain the safest environment for your child.
See below for blank Absent, Early Dismissal & Tardy notes to print off, fill-in, and submit to the health office.
Please let us know if your contact information changes. This is extremely important so that we can always contact you if needed for your child.
