If your child is ill or unable to attend school, please call the Middle School Office at 687-2453 before 8:15 am. Please let us know if your child has a fever equal to or greater than 100 degrees with a cough, runny nose or sore throat. If we have not received a phone call, the attendance clerk will call the emergency contact numbers to determine the reason of absence. This procedure will help us determine, as soon as possible, the reason for an absence and the number of days your child will be out of school. It will also allow us to communicate directly with the parents to discuss problems and provide assistance. Homework requests will be taken on the third day the student is absent. Written excuses should be sent with your child upon their return. If there is a question or if additional information is needed, please call the Middle School Office at 687-2453.
