New Procedure to Report Student Absences

Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, every parent/guardian will receive an attendance call when their child is absent no matter what the reason. Parents/guardians will no longer call to report student absences. The parent/guardian will then be asked to send a written documentation of the reason for the absence with their child when they return to school. 

Please observe the following:

  • All notes for grades 9 & 10 should be submitted to the Main Office
  • All notes for grades 11 & 12 should be submitted to Mr. McKiernan's Office
  • Submit notes for full or partial day absences in advance of the absence (to locations cited above)
  • Submit requests for early dismissal to locations cited above
  • Submit notes explaining a student's late arrival to school to locations cited above
