You are required to call if your child will not be in school. Please leave your name, the child's name, teacher, and the reason for the absence. Call each day of the absence. If the absence is scheduled and covers multiple days, please provide a note in advance.

All schools in Region 16 have 24 hour accessible voice mail so that you can report your child's absence 24/7. If you have any question, the Attendance Policy is explained in detail in the Parent/Student Handbook.
