New Procedure to Report Student Absences

Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, every parent/guardian will receive an attendance call when their child is absent no matter what the reason.  Parents/guardians will no longer call to report student absences. The parent or guardian will then be asked to send a written documentation of the reason for the absence with their child when they return to school. Students should give the note to their teacher.
