When your child is absent, we ask that you call the office or email the school on email@example.com. When we do not hear from you…it has been our practice to follow up your child’s absence with a written note sent home in your child’s bag. This year we have started a new system to confirm the days that your child or children do not attend school. Instead of the previous request for an explanation, an email will be sent out at the end of the week to confirm any absences that have been recorded on your child’s class roll of attendance. So far it is proving to be fast and efficient and I thank everyone for their timely responses.
