Although children should be in school every day, we realize that there are times when this is not possible. Please call the school if your child will be absent for any reason – a note upon return to their teacher is also appreciated. If it is expected that your child will be absent for more than a few days, please contact the school and your child’s teacher so that any missed work can be sent home. If you request that homework be sent home because of an absence, teachers would appreciate a day’s notice to prepare the work. We would also appreciate a phone call if your child has a childhood communicable disease.
