An absence must be cleared within 48 hours. It is the parent/guardian responsibility to excuse student absences. You may excuse your child’s absence in one of the following ways:
- Use the online form below
- Call the Attendance Office, 662-2730, each day your child is absent
- Leave a message on the Attendance Office answering machine
- Send a note with your student upon return to school explaining the absence
Failure to excuse an absence will result in a discipline referral. It is the student’s responsibility to contact teachers to obtain missing assignments/homework. If an excused absence exceeds three days, parents/students should contact the Attendance Office for homework.
Parents may request homework after their child has been absent three consecutive days.

Early dismissal notes or phone calls must be brought or directed to the Attendance Office. Failure to obtain an early dismissal when leaving campus early will result in disciplinary action. In order to accommodate parent /guardian requests for dismissals that occur during the school day, parents are asked to allow sufficient time for processing early dismissal requests. Due to the busy nature of the Attendance Office and daily student schedules, we cannot guarantee student pick up time without at least 60 minutes notice.
