  2. If your child is not feeling well, and he/she is scheduled to attend school in person, please keep your child home. He/she may still access school virtually and be marked present for the school day. However, you must call the attendance line to let us know.
In either case, please leave a message with your child's name, grade, specific reason for absence, duration of absence (if known), and your relationship to the student.
