We have implemented a new way of reporting student absences and late arrivals.
For your convenience, we have set up an email address that you can use to communicate this information. It is

We will also continue to take absence/tardy information over the phone, as we have in the past.

When you call or send an email, please include the following:

  • Student’s First and Last Name
  • Grade and Teacher’s Name
  • Whether the student will be absent or tardy (If tardy, approximately what time will your child be arriving)
  • Days/Dates your child will be out

It is very important that we receive this information by 8:30 am the day your child will be late or absent.

If we don’t hear from you we will call to ensure that your child is with you and safe!

Finally, feel free to call or email the office in the evening if you know that your child will not be attending school the next day.

We will check all messages when we arrive at school in the morning.
