*Notes from a medical professional are accepted in lieu of a parent note.
**An additional parent note will be required for any days not specifically covered by the medical note.
***Absences of 5 or more consecutive school days because of illness require a note from a medical professional.
Please be aware that phone calls are not accepted as documentation for absences. Parents are welcome to give a courtesy call to the attendance clerk to report an absence, but a note will be required upon the student’s return to school. Emails are accepted in certain circumstances, however, please do not email photos of notes, including doctor’s notes. Please send the original to school with your child to turn into the office.
Our attendance clerk is Kendra Broom. All attendance related questions or concerns should be directed to her. She can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 214-496-7100.
