While we do not want students who are sick and contagious at school, we do ask that you partner with us to be sure your student is at school as consistently as possible. Student success begins with consistent attendance - it is important for secondary students to be in class everyday possible. In the event that your student is unable to be at school, please do the following to ensure the absence is properly accounted for and student assignments are completed:
  • Communicate with us! Let our front office know that your student will be absent. Please call 405.324.2236 as early as possible in the day to let us know your student is going to be absent, the reason, and an approximate date of return. Please include the student's name, your name, and your relationship to the student if you leave a message.
  • If you have one, turn in a copy of the Doctor's Note that explains the absence.
  • Be sure your student checks their Canvas to keep up with assignments/activities they are missing while absent.
  • Encourage your student to communicate with their teacher(s) regarding any questions they may have about missing assignments.
  • Be sure make-up work is completed and turned in in a timely manner.
