If your child is sick, you need to call the office every day they will be absent before 8 am. . Not just the first day. For example, your child has fever so you called in sick. 2nd day they still have a fever, call in again. If it’s a known multiple day illness you can let us know the set days on the first day. For example, absent next 4 days due to tonsil surgery. Also, call before 2:45 pm if you need to pick up your child early or if there is a change to their normal pick-up routine. Email does not suffice as any given day recipients might be absent or too busy to check their email. Calling the office is by far the best way to ensure everyone gets the message.
