Report an Absence

Please Follow the Directions on This Page Pertaining to Your Student's Absence


Reporting Absences & Early Dismissal:

Regular attendance and punctuality are important from the beginning of the school year until the last day. Frequent absences and tardies interfere with your child's progress toward learning the necessary basic skills.  Please allow up to 48 hours for your child’s attendance to be updated in the system.  .
