All absences are recorded within 24 hours of the call in.
Parents will receive a phone call from attendance after your child has missed two days of school.
Parents can leave a message on the attendance line OR can use this form to report an absence (click here) Truancy Letters are sent out at three days absent, six days absent, and at 12 days absent. Also at 12 days absent, a truancy letter will be sent to the parents and to the court system.
