Absence Note Instructions

Absence Note Instructions

Please do not call the school to report an absence for your student. An absence cannot be excused with a phone call. To report an absence, submit a note (see below).

A parent/guardian can submit a note any ONE of the following ways:

1. Submit an electronic note from the Absence Request tab on the Skyward Attendance tile. A doctor/dentist/appointment note can be attached to the request.

2. Email [email protected] the reason for the absence or a picture/scan of a doctor/dentist/appointment note.

3. Have your student bring a note with your written signature or a doctor/dentist/appointment note to the main office when he/she returns to school.

Please do not submit the same note/information more than one way.

In order for an absence to be excused, a note with the reason for the absence must be submitted within three days of the student’s return to school.

Failure to turn in a valid note within three days of your student’s return will result in the absence being recorded as unlawful.

Unlawful absence letters are sent to your email. The third unlawful absence letter is also mailed home. After the fourth unlawful absence, an invitation to participate in a Student Attendance Improvement Conference will be sent to your email.

After ten absences excused by a parent note and/or unexcused absences, the district notifies the parent through Skyward that a doctor’s note may be required for future absences to be excused.
