School Absences

If your child will be absent from school, please be sure to call our absence hotline outside of school hours or directly to the main office during school hours.
Medical appointment slips will excuse your child's absence. The excusal slip can be faxed or emailed to the school.

Student Illness

  • When calling in a sick child, please remember to include what symptoms your child is experiencing. This is important for keeping records of illnesses.
  • If your child is sent home from school with any symptoms, they may not return to school until the symptoms subside for a full 24hrs.
  • If your child goes to the doctor, the office will need a letter to dismiss your child's absence from school.
  • If your child is showing any flu-like symptoms please keep them home.
  • Please do not send your child to school if they need medication for flu-like symptoms.

Daily Schedule Changes

If you have any changes to your child's pickup or bus schedule, please call the office by 2pm on full days and 11:15 am on half days even if you have emailed your child's teacher. With the change of the 2021 school hours, the teachers do not always have time to check emails during school the day. The same process should be used with the transportation office as well as the B.A.S.E. director.
