What can you do to help?
  • Schedule appointments to occur before or after school.
  • Allow your student to stay home only when they are truly sick.
  • Develop a back-up plan for getting to school.
  • Talk to your student about the importance of attendance.
  • Talk to your student's teachers if you notice sudden changes in behavior. This could be something tied to something going on at school.
  • Update information if your address or phone number changes.
  • If your student is going to be absent, please contact your school's attendance office. The attendance voicemail system is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • If prior notice is not possible, you may call, send and e-mail or written note upon return to school. Please include:
    • Name of student
    • Name and contact information of the individual proving the excuse, and their relationship to the student.
    • Dates of absence
    • Reason for absence
Please contact the office manager or attendance office at your school for more information.
