What do I do when my child is out sick?

Call the absence hot line number: 949-7740 ext. 257. You may also click on the "Report and Absence" section on our homepage which will allow you to email your student's absence to the front office staff. If your child will be absent, you may call in and request homework from the teacher. Otherwise, your child will be expected to pick up the missed assignments upon his/her return. Independent Study Contracts may be signed if you know your child will be missing 5 days or more. This will not be counted as an absence.


What if I need homework for a student who is absent?

Call the office before lunch (11:15 MIddle School, 11:45 Primary, and 12:15 upper) and request homework for the student. It will be available after school.


What if we're going out of town?

If your child will be missing 5 or more days for any reason, please go to the office at least a week prior to leaving and sign an Independent Study Contract. You will need to meet with your child's teacher who will write up a study plan to be completed during your child's absence. Please allow a reasonable amount of time for this. The finished contract with all the assigned work must be turned in upon your student's return to school or the absence will be unexcused. 


What if my child arrives tardy to school due to a doctor's appointment?

All tardy students must check in at the office. All tardies are recorded and will be excused only with a doctor's note.


May I send in treats for my child's class on his/her birthday?

Sorry, school policy does not allow treats, flowers, balloons, etc. to be delivered to your child's classroom.  Your child will receive a small token at school in their birthday month. If pre-arranged with your child's teacher, you may bring in a small goody bag of non-food items such as pencils, erasers, etc to send home with each student. This is for all grade levels and part of the district wellness policy.
