New Attendance Policy Beginning Jan 2022

In an effort to efficiently clear attendance due to the number of calls we are receiving – BEGINNING JAN. 2022 – WE WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTING PHONE CALLS TO CLEAR STUDENT ABSENCES – we are asking all parents/guardians to clear attendance in one of the following ways:


  1. Write a note with all required information and submit to the attendance office with the student.
  2. Email an attached written note/ photo of a written note- OR- use the note template and send to the attendance email.
  3. Email medical notes directly to the attendance email to excuse a student (dentist, dental, etc.)



However, we will continue to accept phone calls for emergencies and absences due to Covid.
