Attendance Reporting Instructions

We have had many questions this week about how to report student absences, so we have answers! :)
  • Absences must be reported using the Safe Arrival system by calling 1-866-490-7371 or using either the app or website (much faster than navigating the phone prompts). You are required to report all absences using this system, including early pickups and late arrivals for appointments. Emailing or calling the office or teacher does not excuse your student. PrePlanned absence forms should still be submitted in advance for planned absences of more than two days. The links below are the detailed instruction documents to get you started if you are new to the system.

Background Checks for Chaperones

To chaperone on field trips, parents must have an approved background check on file. When your background check is approved, you will receive a Secure Volunteer ID card in the mail with your expiration date on it. Keep this card, you must bring it when you are chaperoning a trip. You cannot chaperone without a valid Secure ID card. (If you are an employee of The School District of Waukesha, you do not need to apply, you will show your District ID card).

You're Invited! Next PTSO Meeting

Our next PTSO (Parent-Teacher-Student Organization) meeting will be next week Wednesday (September 15), 6:30 pm at Bethesda Park. Children welcome! They can play on the playground while we meet.
