When a student is absent, the parent or guardian must phone the school before his/her return: 927-3889. If a phone call has been received, a note from the parent will not be needed. If the school has not received a phone call, the student must bring a note from his/her parent or guardian and obtain an absence slip from the attendance office. Students are to clear all absences on their own time to prevent unexcused tardies to class. Students are allowed three (3) school days to clear or change a classification of an absence. An absence not cleared by the third school day will result in a cut being issued.
