To report absence, do not email, please call the Attendance Desk, x2144. Make sure when you call or send a note about an illness that you inform the school of the diagnosis or symptoms. We are required to track some illnesses and this information is important. Please keep your student home if they are sick to help us stop the spread of illness. Contact the Health Office if you have questions about whether or not your student should come to school. Thank you!
