Will your child be absent, tardy, dismissed early, or picked up at the regular dismissal time rather than take their bus home? Scan the QR code to get the digital Note from Home to School.

    Please note that written documentation for a student's absence must be submitted to the office and must include the date and reason for absence and the signature of the parent/guardian. In cases of chronic absenteeism, increased tardiness, or early dismissals, families will receive written notification.
