When a student is absent, please report the absence by sending an email to Teacher’s Secretary, Kimberly Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a written note to your child's homeroom teacher upon their return to school.
If a note is not received, the absence will remain documented as Truant. Please see the Student Handbook for more information. Schools need documentation from a parent to determine if an absence is lawful or truant.
