Please call the school office before 8:00 AM if your child is going to be absent or tardy. Give your name, child’s name, classroom number or teacher's name, and the reason for absence or tardiness. A note should be sent to the teacher when your child returns to school explaining the reason for the absence. If we do not hear from you on a day when your child is marked absent, a staff member will call you to verify your child’s absence. Students who are tardy MUST be escorted to the office upon arrival by a parent who will sign in the student. Students arriving at 8:30 are considered tardy.
