REPORTING AN ABSENCE Phone 371-5096 When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.
APPOINTMENTS: Just a reminder that the office needs to be notified about any appointments that will take students out of the building during the school day. We also need a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc. when a student returns to school. If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses. Attendance is a critical factor that significantly affects student learning. Students who are not in school miss out on important instruction. If possible, we would like students to be in school every day. However, we do know that illnesses, emergencies and unexpected events can result in a student being absent. Parents have seven parent call in days each semester. Our attendance office will call you between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each day your child is absent, if you have not called the school. We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days. If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.
OUR MISSION: Edgewood will maximize student learning.
