Daily Health Screening

Beginning tomorrow, If you forget to complete the health form in the parent portal, your child will be pulled from their line up spot and brought to the front of the school where they will undergo a temperature check. They will be under the supervision of Officer Charlie while the office staff contacts parents.

Please prepare to make this Health Screening Part of your daily school routine by adding it to your digital calendar or notifications. These procedures will ensure all children are coming to school safely and healthy. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please complete this screening by 7:30 a.m.

Reporting Absences and Virtual Learning

Please use the Parent Portal to record your child's absences or to report that your child will be learning virtually for the day. This will allow us to mark the day according to their individual needs. If they choose not to connect with their teacher virtually, we will change their attendance at the close of the day.

Please do not leave any messages on the absentee line. This line is not monitored on a daily basis.


  • Log into the Parent Portal
  • Select the Attendance Tab
  • Select Notify the Attendance Office Tab
  • Use the drop-down selection to mark your child absent
  • Enter date
  • Choose student name
  • State reason for the absence or virtual learning (i.e., current temp, any symptoms)
  • Click green submit button to post attendance

Virtual Learning

If your child is going to be out sick and you want them to be part of virtual learning, you must inform all your child's teachers of this change. Not all classes have students participating in virtual learning on a daily basis. Providing your child's teachers with ample notice will allow them to be prepared for your child.
