Please Leave a Message - If you are calling during normal business hours and reach the voicemail, it is because we are on another line or helping a parent or student at the attendance window. Please leave a message. We check and retrieve our voicemail every few minutes throughout the day.

Please call at least 1 hr in advance  and ask your student to pick-up the pass in the attendance windows before school,  nutrition break or lunch. The Attendance Office does not issue OCP's for students to leave at lunch or during the last 30 minutes of the school day.

Attendance is Important! State law requires pupils to attend their assigned classes every day school is in session. Any student missing more than 30 days for any one class in a semester will not receive credit for that class. All absences not cleared by a parent / guardian phone call to the attendance office within 72 hours will be considered truant and the student will be assigned a Saturday School. The absence must be cleared for the truancy to be removed.

Making Up an Absence - Students can make up absences during Saturday Schools offered at least once per month or by attending four 1 hour after school attendance make up sessions Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Saturday Schools are held from 8:30a-12:30p and breakfast and lunch are available.  After school make up sessions are held from 3:45p-4:45p.
