Absence & Attendance


If your child is going to be absent for any reason, please call the attendance line by 8:30am.  You can leave a voicemail message 24-hours a day.  Include the child's name, date/time of absence, and reason for absence.  If the school does not receive this notification, Ohio law requires that we contact the parents of all students who are absent unless we are notified in advance.

To pick-up assignments for your child, please call the attendance line by 10am.  If you request homework, please let us know if you would like to pick it up at the end of the school day or send it home with another student.  Homework can be picked up between 3:00-3:30.  Requests made after 10:00 a.m. will be filled the next day

A tardy is excused when a pre-arrangement has been made with the office for medical appointments. If you call your child in tardy, please indicate if they will be eating a school lunch or packing their lunch. If the student is out for more than two hours, that student will be marked absent for that half day period.

There are times when your child will have to leave school for a doctor's appointment, etc. For any student to leave school during the school day, the parent or responsible adult must sign the student out of school on the sign-out sheet in the office. We cannot allow students to sign themselves out of school for obvious reasons.
