When students are absent for legitimate reasons, we ask that parents, preferably by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the school. We now have ‘School Messenger’, an automated attendance call out program. Parents will receive a call in the evening regarding any students who do not have an excused absence. Students who have an unexcused absence are to make arrangements with the teacher to make up the time missed during lunch or after school. Repeated truancy or lates may result in being placed on a contract, parent/student conferencing and/or referral to school based team for further consideration.
