Attendance Info

What to do if someone is testing for COVID

If someone in your household is testing for COVID, please let the school know. The district policy is to keep all your school-aged children from all the PLC schools home until the test results come back. We ask this in case the results come back positive.

Once you receive your results, please send me a copy. We need a copy before your student returns to school. You may email a copy to or fax a copy to 402-898-0415, whichever is easier for you.

Thank you for helping us keep all our students safe!

Normal Attendance Procedures

If your student will be absent or arriving late, please contact Brenda Jung in the attendance office before 9:00 am. Written notes are not accepted.

Call or email 402-898-0413 or

State your name, the student's name, grade, date of absence, and reason for absence.

A message may be left if the line is busy or if it is before or after school hours. Messages are checked frequently.

For appointments, please try to call at least 30 minutes before your student needs to leave school. Do not come in; your student will meet you outside.

For medical appointments, please have your student bring a doctor's note to the attendance office.

If you know of an upcoming absence, you may call or email in advance; you do not need to wait until the day of the absence to notify the attendance office.

Parents may check attendance records anytime by using the district app.

Thanks for your help!

2020-2021 Yearbooks

Don’t miss out on your chance to order your full-color 2021 Yearbook for your student! You can reserve your copy for $70 until the end of the first semester; the price goes up to $75 starting December 19. Orders must be received by April 15, 2021. You can order online at or send cash or check to Mr. Rohacik in room 307. Please contact Mr. Rohacik at with any questions.

Please note: The PLHS Yearbook is a “fall delivery” book. Students will pick up their books at registration in August 2021. This allows for a book that can document the ENTIRE school year, including spring sports/activities, Prom (hopefully!) & graduation.

Remote Learners (& Parents) -- The Yearbook Staff NEEDS Your Help!

The 2021 Yearbook staff wants to make sure that we are able to include as many students in our book as possible. This includes the remote learners.

We need content from any and all remote learners who would be willing to send us photos, and/or some short reflections about their experiences in remote learning. Send us pictures of you working on computers, in Zoom classes, or whatever else you are doing while you are “in school at home.” Try to get your faces in the pictures, so you might need to take some selfies or have others take pictures of you.

Please send pictures and reflections to We appreciate anything you would be willing to contribute! Thanks for your cooperation. We hope to hear from you soon!
