QR code to get digital notes from home to school.It is the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to call the school to report an absence and the reason for your child missing school. Please call the office at 860-873-5076 or leave a voicemail before or after school hours at 860-873-5078; provide the student’s name, grade, and reason for absence.

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.
