Smith Attendance

What do I do when my child is absent?

1. Call the school (The phone call does not excuse the absence, you must have a written note)

2. Send a note when your child returns to school. If you forget to write a note or in a rush, come into the office and you can fill out a short form.

3. Notes must be submitted to the school office no later than 5 school days after the student's absence(s)

* The principal will determine if the absence is excused or unexcused.

What do I do when my child has a doctor's appointment?

1. Call the school.

2. Bring the doctor's note to school.
